Consensus only includes forecasts prepared on an IFRS 16 basis
IFRS 16 ‘Leases’ applies to the Company’s consolidated financial statements from the financial year commencing 1 February 2019. Kingfisher adopted the full retrospective transition option, and has therefore restated its comparatives.
The Company’s half year 2019/20 results announcement, released on 18 September 2019, included interim condensed consolidated financial statements prepared on an IFRS 16 ‘Leases’ basis, with fully restated half year and full year comparatives.

Save as described below, the figures above are a simple arithmetic average of recent forecasts that have been provided to Kingfisher by registered investment analysts. The consensus only includes forecasts prepared on an IFRS 16 basis. The figures do not give greater weight to the forecasts of any individual analyst and may or may not represent the market consensus. These average estimates are not endorsed by Kingfisher, nor does Kingfisher assume any obligation to update or revise them after the date above. Kingfisher reserves the right, from time to time, with or without notice, to exclude one or more analysts’ forecasts on the basis that Kingfisher believes them to be unrepresentative and/or out of date.
