1 – IFRS versus segment information:
The main difference between IFRS and segment reporting concerns revenue recognition. Under IFRS, revenue recognition is generally deferred until project completion and delivery to the customer when performance obligations are met. As part of the sector information, net income from projects in progress is recognized on the basis of the percentage of completion (POC). The posting of turnover has subsequent effects on the posting of depreciation of the multi-client library. Please see the Annual Report for a full description of the Company’s accounting policies.
Adjustments between IFRS revenue and segment revenue for Q3 2021:
Revenues reported under IFRS: USD 200 million
– Recognized revenue from performance obligations fulfilled during the third quarter for completed projects: $ 163 million
+ Revenue recognized under the POC during the 3rd quarter: 24 million USD
= Preliminary reported segment net revenue: US $ 61 million
The differences in EBIDTA and operating income between IFRS and segment information are due to aggregate differences in income and the resulting impact on depreciation.
2 – Defined as Operating cash flow after investments in the multi-client library.
