Segment reporting

An operating segment is a component of Wessanen that engages in business activities from which it may earn revenues and incur expenses, including revenues and expenses that relate to transactions with any of the Company’s other components.

The operating segment’s operating result (EBIT) is reviewed regularly by the Executive Board of Wessanen to make decisions about resources to be allocated to the segment and assess the performance, and for which discrete financial information is available.

Segment results that are reported to the Executive Board of Wessanen include items directly attributable to a segment as well as those that can be allocated on a reasonable basis. Unallocated items mainly comprise part of the overhead expenses (corporate costs), financial income and expenses and income tax gains and losses. Corporate assets and liabilities and income tax assets and liabilities are excluded from segment assets and liabilities. Segment capital expenditure is the total cost incurred during the period to acquire property, plant and equipment, and intangible assets other than goodwill.

Inter-segment sales are executed under normal commercial terms and conditions that would be available to unrelated third parties.
