The acquisition of 100% of Lane was finalised on 4 January 2016.
The IFRS provide that a subsidiary shall be consolidated starting from the date when control is acquired. Therefore, the condensed interim consolidated financial statements at 30 June 2016 present the statement of financial position figures at 31 December 2015 and the income statement figures as at and for the six months ended 30 June 2015 for comparative purposes that do not include Lane Group. It follows that the data for the first half of 2016 are not fully comparable.
In order to make these data more comparable with the corresponding period of 2015, this section sets out Salini Impregilo Group's key figures using the same consolidation scope.
The Group monitors the key figures of Lane Group for management purposes adjusting the IFRS figures to present the results of the non-subsidiary joint ventures consolidated on a proportionate basis. These management accounts results (works under management), show the progress made on the contracts managed directly by Lane Industries or through its non-controlling investments in the joint ventures.
The subsequent section on “Initial considerations on the comparability of data - Lane Industries Incorporated” provides more information on the following reconciliation of the adjusted key figures.
The paragraph “Alternative performance indicators” in the “Other information” section gives a definition of the financial statements indicators used to present the Group's highlights.
