and assumptions that can affect the carrying amount of certain
assets and liabilities, income and expenses, and the information
disclosed in the notes to the financial statements. Management
reviews these estimates and assumptions on a regular basis to
ensure that they are appropriate based on past experience and the
current economic situation. Items in future financial statements
may differ from current estimates as a result of changes in these

preparation of these financial statements concern the valuation
and useful lives of intangible assets, property and equipment, and
financial assets, as well as the amount of provisions for claims,
litigation and contingencies and the assumptions underlying the
calculation of pension obligations.

the relevant notes to the financial statements.

of a voluntary separation plan in its Paris headquarters.The related
process and procedures were presented to employee representatives
in June and the first of the 114 employees concerned began leaving
in September. A total expense of €36 million was recognized in
respect to the plan in the 2013 financial statements.
On November 27, 2013, Accor announced its new strategic roadmap.
At year-end, management pledged to the unions that it would
manage the impact on employees as part of a voluntary separation
plan, which was presented to employee representatives. It would

this respect, a €16 million provision was recognized in the financial
statements, corresponding to the Group’s estimate of the expected
expense based on previously granted financial conditions.
