Anora Group Plc Stock Exchange Release 18 November 2021 at 9:00 am EET
Anora publishes historical pro forma financial information
Anora publishes historical pro forma financial information for the full year of 2020 and 2019, and for the first six months of 2021. The attached pro forma information has been prepared to illustrate the effects of the merger of Altia and Arcus and to facilitate the comparability of Anora's financial information. The pro forma information is unaudited and it includes also quarterly data.
Historical pro forma information is presented for illustrative purposes only and addresses a hypothetical situation as if the merger of Altia and Arcus had been completed on 1 January 2019. Therefore, it is not necessarily indicative of what Anora's historical financial performance actually would have been had the merger been completed as of the date indicated and does not purport to project the operating results of Anora as of any future date.
The statutory cross-border absorption merger of Arcus ASA into Altia Plc was registered with the Finnish Trade Register on the effective date of the merger on 1 September 2021. As a result of the registration of the completion of the merger, Altia became Anora. Arcus has been consolidated to Anora as of 1 September 2021. Total of 31 413 139 new Anora shares were issued as merger consideration to Arcus shareholders.
Anora's Interim Report for January-September will be published on 25 November 2021
As a change to the previous practice, Anora will publish interim reports prepared according to IAS 34 standard for Q1 and Q3. The interim report for January-September 2021 which is to be published on 25 November will include financial statements and notes as well as pro forma information for Q3 21.
The segment reporting includes former Altia segments - Finland & Exports, Scandinavia and Altia Industrial - as well as Arcus as a fourth segment. The new reporting segments according the Anora's future operating model will be announced later.
