Underlying earnings


Underlying earnings is net profit attributable to equity shareholders, adjusted to remove special items and remeasurements, and any related tax and non-controlling interests. Special items are those items of financial performance that the Group believes should be excluded from underlying financial performance. Operating special items include impairment charges and reversals and other exceptional items, including restructuring costs. Non-operating special items include profits and losses on disposals of investments and businesses as well as certain adjustments relating to business combinations. Remeasurements include adjustments to ensure that the unrealised gains or losses on non-hedge derivative instruments are recorded in underlying earnings in the same period as the underlying transaction against which these instruments provide an economic, but not formally designated, hedge as well as foreign exchange impact arising in US dollar functional currency entities on deferred tax balances.
