Home > Press > Nanogate AG: Accounting switchover to IFRS has positive effect on consolidated net profit
Nanogate AG (ISIN DE 000A0JKHC9) has converted its accounting to the international IFRS standard. This led to a consolidated net profit of EUR1.2 million for financial year 2006. Using the previous HGB (German Commercial Code) standard, the net 2006 result would have been a EUR0.3 million loss arising from the cost of stock market flotation.
Nanogate AG: Accounting switchover to IFRS has positive effect on consolidated net profit
Saarbrücken, Germany | Posted on August 30th, 2007
The new accounting standard is another important step forward in capital market communication. The most important differences between IFRS and HGB reporting were as follows:
? The IPO costs incurred in 2006 do not reduce the income statement (P&L) result. Instead, they reduce the IPO proceeds in the balance sheet capital reserve. The result is an IFRS net profit for the year of EUR1.2 million (rather than a EUR0.3 million loss).
? Deferred taxes are stated for various amounts in the IFRS and tax balance sheets. For loss carry¬overs from previous years that will in Future reduce the amount to be paid in taxes Nanogate has stated EUR0.5 million in deferred taxes on the assets side.
Now that the consolidated financial statements have been drawn up according to IFRS for the financial year 2006, the interim report for the first half of 2007 - to be published at the end of September - will also be based on the IFRS standard. The focus of the switchover to IFRS is on shareholder interest and thereby on stock market success. Publication of IFRS accounts is now mandatory for compa-nies listed or seeking a Listing in regulated market segments on the German stock market. Ralf Zastrau, CEO of Nanogate AG, says that 'For international in-stitutional investors in particular the company will now become even more inter-esting. Nanogate now fulfils the key requirements for Prime Standard listing. Our shareholder structure has grown significantly wider since our Entry Standard IPO in October 2006. We aim to take this change into account by making our finan-cial reporting even more transparent.'
The annual financial statements for 2006 to IFRS are available in full on our web-site at http://www.nanogate.de (in German Language).
