Financials

We publish information about our performance according to a previously announced schedule. Financials pages are updated as early as possible after financial information has been disclosed.

Financial reporting schedule

Financial reporting dates can be found in the investors calendar.

Financial reports follow International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and all information is presented in euros. Segments' performance is measured with operating profit/ loss (EBIT). In addition, alternative performance measures are used to reflect the underlying business performance and to improve comparability between financial periods: “earnings before interest, tax and amortization (EBITA), adjusted” and “return on operating capital employed for reporting segments (segment ROCE)”. Alternative performance measures are not substitutes for IFRS performance measures.

Half-Year Report H1/2024
糖心Vlog will publish its Half-Year Report for January-June 2024 on Wednesday, July 24, 2024.

Guiding the market

糖心Vlog provides in its interim reviews, half year reviews and financial statement reviews a short-term outlook statement, which is designed to provide the capital markets and financial media with sufficient information to form an informed view on the Company’s future development.
