  1. Adjusted pre-tax profit and adjusted basic earnings per share restated to exclude contribution from Hornbach, following its disposal in 2014/15. There was no contribution from Hornbach in 2014/15.
  2. Sales, retail profit, adjusted pre-tax profit, like-for-like sales growth and adjusted basic earnings per share restated to exclude B&Q China operating results, following the disposal of a 70% controlling stake in 2015/16.
  3. Like-for-like sales growth in 2012/13 was calculated by comparing 53 weeks against the equivalent 53 weeks of the prior year. Like-for-like sales growth in 2013/14 is calculated by comparing 52 weeks against the equivalent 52 weeks of the prior year. This only impacts the UK & Ireland businesses with all of the other businesses reporting on a calendar basis. The effect of the 53rd week on the results of the Group in 2012/13 was the inclusion of an additional £72m sales and an immaterial benefit to retail profit.
  4. 2012/13 restated for IAS 19 (revised), ‘Employee benefits’, resulting in the reclassification of £3m of pension administration costs from net finance costs to retail profit.
  5. 2014/15 restated for IFRIC 21, ‘Levies’, resulting in a restatement of balance sheet payables, deferred tax and equity shareholders’ funds.
  6. In 2015/16 the Group moved its year end to 31 January (previously the nearest Saturday to 31 January) resulting in a calendar year ended 31 January 2016. This only impacts the UK & Ireland businesses with all other businesses already reporting on a calendar basis. This change had no material impact on the Group’s results.
  7. Other net current (liabilities)/assets and other net non-current liabilities reported above exclude any components of net debt/(cash).
  8. Excluding business acquisitions.
  9. Excluding joint ventures and associates.
