AB Klaipedos nafta has announced its unaudited financial results for 2019.
KN’s financial accounting indicators for the 12 months of 2019, compared to the 12 months of 2018, have been negatively affected by IFRS 16 ‘leases’ amended as of 1 January 2019. This change has significantly affected KN’s statement of financial position, statement of comprehensive income and financial indicators. In 2018, the costs of lease have been recognised in the statement of comprehensive income and had no impact on the statement of financial position. Upon coming into effect of the amendments to the standard, leases have been recognised as assets and liabilities (right of use the assets and financial lease liabilities). The highest part of lease payments are denominated in US dollars, as a result changes in exchange rates occur in the statement of comprehensive income, however in reality the company is not affected by this.
Regarding of the reasons mentioned above, in order to represent the real result, the adjusted result without the influence of IFRS 16 is provided next to financial result with the impact of IFRS 16.
