Accounting principle

Shareholder’s equity

Repurchasing treasury shares occurs, and the Board normally proposes obtaining a mandate to repurchase treasury shares, which involves acquiring an amount of shares such that AddLife’s own holding at no time exceeds ten percent of all shares in the company. The purpose of the repurchase is to provide the Board with increased scope for action in its work with the Company's capital structure, to enable the use of repurchased shares as payment in acquisitions, and to secure the Company's commitments in existing incentive programmes. When treasury shares are repurchased, the entire consideration reduces retained earnings. Proceeds from the disposal of equity instruments are recognised as an increase in retained earnings, as are any transaction costs.  


Translation reserve

The translation reserve includes all exchange differences that arise in translating financial statements of foreign operations prepared in a currency other than the Group's presentation currency for financial reports.

Restricted reserves

Restricted reserves are funds that cannot be paid out as dividends. Share premium reserve A share premium reserve arises in connection with a rights issue that is subscribed at a premium and is included in unrestricted equity. 

Retained earnings

Retained earnings comprises the previous year's unrestricted equity, less any provision to the statutory reserve and less any dividend paid. Together with profit for the year and the share premium reserve, retained earnings constitute the sum of unrestricted equity, that is, the amount available to be paid as dividends to shareholders.
