ALTERNATIVE PERFORMANCE MEASURES

Grieg Seafood Group applies APMs (alternative performance measures) to demonstrate corporate achievements in the most relevant and informative way possible to our users. APMs listed below have been applied consistently over time, with one exception: Calculation of net interest bearing debt excl. factoring. Starting with Q1 reporting in 2016, figures showing Bremnes Fryseri AS´ share of bank in Ocean Quality AS, as well as factoring, are omitted.

The perfomance measure is used to calculate NIBD/EBITDA share, which represents one of the covenants required by the bank syndicate, where Ocean Quality AS is not consolidated into the calculation. The revised method of Q1 2016 will apply to future calculations of NIBD/EBITDA shares under the loan terms.
