The preparation of financial statements requires the use of estimates
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
The main estimates and judgments made by Management in the
preparation of these financial statements concern the valuation

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.

period to bring all of the plan’s initiatives to fruition, several of which
were already implemented in the last quarter of 2014.
