* The key figures for 2012–2013 are based on the FAS financial statements. For this reason, they are not entirely comparable with the IFRS key figures for 2014–2016. With regard to the IFRS figures, the average number of shares is the weighted average for the period.
** When calculating return on investment, contingent consideration for earn-outs has been taken into account in interest-bearing liabilities. However, when calculating gearing, only interest-bearing debt related to drawn financing loans has been taken into account.
