The consolidated pro-forma p&l includes the full results of the acquisitions made during the 2017, while the official consolidated p&l includes only the pro-quota results after the acquisition date of the new companies. Furthermore, all direct and indirect costs related to being a company publicly listed on the Italian Stock Exchange have been deleted in the pro-forma consolidated p&l, together with all direct and indirect costs related to M&A and extraordinary activities.
The consolidated pro-forma has been prepared:
• to have a comparable representation to the consolidated p&l
• to have a representation useful to compare DHH to its private peers, which are not listed and don’t afford this kind of costs.
