Initial application of new IFRSs

The KION Group adopted IFRS 9 ‘Financial Instruments’, IFRS 15 ‘Revenue from Contracts with Customers’ and IFRS 16 ‘Leases’ in full and retrospectively for the first time with effect from 1 January 2018. Only the amended rules on hedge accounting in accordance with IFRS 9 are being applied prospectively. The prior-year figures have not been restated for IFRS 9, whereas for IFRS 15 and IFRS 16 the prior-year figures have been restated in accordance with the transitional provisions applicable in each case.

The disclosures relating to the financial performance and financial position of the KION Group, the consolidated income statement, the consolidated statement of comprehensive income, the consolidated statement of financial position, the consolidated statement of cash flows and the segment report take into account the effects and changes in presentation resulting from the initial application of the aforementioned financial reporting standards. The quantitative effects of initial application of these standards were explained in detail under Accounting policies in the notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements for the period ended 30 June 2018.
