Other income of € 82.0 million for the first nine months of 2013 included further income of € 8.1 million connected with the sale in December 2012 of our controlling interest (70.0 per cent) in Linde Hydraulics GmbH & Co. KG, Aschaffenburg (referred to below as Linde Hydraulics).
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 first three quarters of 2013, this resulted in additional deferred tax assets being recognised on loss carryforwards of € 47.9 million that it had previously not been possible to utilise, of which € 20.0 million had been utilised by 30 September 2013.
Earnings per share
Basic earnings per share are 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 (Q1-Q3 2013: 76,346,342 no-par-value shares; Q3 2013: 98,863,795 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. Due to the additional capital increases carried out during the second quarter of 2013 (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 98,700,000 no-par-value shares as at 30 September 2013. This did not include the 200,000 no-par-value treasury shares which were repurchased by KION GROUP AG in the third quarter of 2013 as part of a buy-back programme. Accordingly, 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 September 2013, there were no equity instruments that diluted the earnings per share for the number of shares issued.
