Selected notes to the consolidated income statement

Other income

Other income of € 65.9 million for the first half of 2013 included further income of € 8.1 million connected with the sale of our controlling interest (70 per cent) in Linde Hydraulics GmbH & Co. KG, Aschaffenburg (referred to below as Linde Hydraulics).

Income taxes

In the consolidated interim financial statements, current income taxes are calculated on the basis of the expected income tax rate for the full year.

In April 2013, KION GROUP GmbH, Wiesbaden (controlling company; since renamed KION Material Handling GmbH), and Linde Material Handling GmbH, Aschaffenburg (subordinated company), concluded a profit-and-loss transfer agreement. The agreement came into effect upon entry in the commercial register on 17 May 2013. In the second quarter of 2013, this resulted in additional deferred tax assets of € 36.2 million being recognised on loss carryforwards that it had previously not been possible to utilise.

Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the net income (loss) accruing to the KION GROUP AG shareholders by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the reporting period (H1 2013: 64,707,912 no-par-value shares; Q2 2013: 65,457,496 no-par-value shares). The applicable amounts for net income (loss) can be found in the consolidated income statement. The number of shares taken into account was adjusted in accordance with the calculation method in IAS 33 and reflected a stock split from € 2.00 to € 1.00 per share as well as the capital increases from company funds in the first half of 2013. As a result, the applicable number of shares was adjusted by 63,700,000 no-par-value shares as at 1 January 2013 and by 63,310,500 no-par-value shares as at the start of the second quarter of 2013. Due to the additional capital increases carried out during the reporting period (see the section “Equity”), the number of shares to be taken into account in accordance with IAS 33 advanced from 63,950,000 no-par-value shares as at 1 January 2013 to 98,900,000 no-par-value shares as at 30 June 2013. Similarly, the calculation for each of the prior-year periods shown is based on an adjusted weighted average number of shares outstanding of 63,171,000 no-par-value shares.

As at 30 June 2013, there were no equity instruments that diluted the earnings per share for the number of shares issued.
