ELEMENTIS PLC

CHANGE OF PRESENTATION CURRENCY

2009 COMPARATIVES RE-PRESENTED IN US DOLLARS

 

 

INTRODUCTION

Elementis announced at the time of its 2009 preliminary results announcement that the Board had decided to change the Group's reporting currency to US Dollars in 2010. Below, the key financial information for 2009 re-presented in US Dollars is set out for comparative purposes.

 

BACKGROUND

The majority of the Group's sales and earnings originate in US Dollars or US Dollar linked currencies and the change of presentation currency to the US Dollar will more closely align the Group's external financial reporting with the profile of the Group, as well as with current internal management reporting.

 

The change of the Group's presentation currency has been accounted for in accordance with IAS21, The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates.

 

The following methodology has been used to re-present the 2009 results, originally reported in Sterling, into US Dollars:

 

a)   Income and expenses have been translated at the average exchange rate for the relevant period;

 

b)   Assets and liabilities have been translated at the closing exchange rate for each balance sheet date: and

 

c)   Equity items have been translated at historical exchange rates.

 

The relevant exchange rates used are as follows:

 

 


6 months ended 30 June 2009

Year ended 31 December 2009


£1=US$

£1=US$

Average rate

1.47

Note:

 

The classification of exceptional items between cost of sales and administrative expenses in the June 09 consolidated income statement has been amended to be consistent with the presentation in the 2009 full year accounts.  This has no impact on the results before exceptional items or on reported operating profit in either the Interim Statement or in the 2009 full year results.
