Estimated impact of remedies
As announced on May 18, 2017, Nordic Capital Fund VIII, currently the indirect majority shareholder of Lindorff, and the other parties to the intended combination of Intrum Justitia and Lindorff proposed divestment of Lindorff’s entire business in Denmark, Estonia, Finland and Sweden as well as Intrum Justitia’s entire business in Norway (collectively, the “ Carveout Business ”) to address potential competition concerns identified by the European Commission.

The following table presents estimates of the contribution that the Carveout Business would have made to certain key performance indicators of the Combined Group as of and for the twelve months ended March 31, 2017 after giving pro forma effect to the combination.

For   the twelve months ended March 31, 2017

Net   revenue  14
of   which CMS  17
of   which Financial Services  12
Pro   Forma EBITDA  13
Pro   Forma Adjusted EBITDA  14
ERC  17

Any estimates regarding the effect of divestment of the Carveout Business are subject to significant uncertainties and limitations. These estimates and the accounting records upon which they are based have not been audited or reviewed by the independent auditors of Intrum Justitia or Lindorff nor have they been prepared in accordance with IFRS or any other generally accepted accounting standards. The estimates have been provided with respect to certain limited income statement items and operating data and accordingly do not include any information that would usually be included in financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. None of Intrum Justitia, Lindorff or either of their respective independent auditors have undertaken a comprehensive analysis of the financial results or position of the Carveout Business as a separate entity or the contribution of the Carveout Business or any component thereof to the financial results or position of Intrum Justitia, Lindorff or the Combined Group as of and for the twelve months ended March 31, 2017 or any other date. Furthermore, these estimates are based on information derived from the management accounts or internal information systems, as the case may be, of Intrum Justitia and Lindorff as of and for the twelve months ended March 31, 2017 and the actual financial impact of divesting the Carveout Business at the time of its sale may differ materially from estimates of this impact based on these sources. In addition, there can be no assurance that this proposal to the European Commission will be accepted, and they may require additional or alternative requirements as a condition of approval of the combination.

Presentation of Pro Forma Financial Information and Non-IFRS Financial Measures

The u naudited pro f orma financial i nformation of the Combined Group presented above has been included to describe a hypothetical situation. It has been prepared for illustrative purposes only, does not include all of the information required for financial statements under IFRS and may not necessarily reflect the actual results of operations that would have been achieved if the combination of Intrum Justitia and Lindorff had actually been completed on January 1, 2016 or the results Intrum Justitia will achieve for any future period. This u naudited pro f orma financial i nformation has not been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Regulation S-X of the U.S. Securities Act, applicable EU regulations or any generally accepted accounting standards.

The non-IFRS financial measures presented herein are not recognized measures of financial performance under IFRS, but measures used by management to monitor the underlying performance of our business and operations. In particular, the non-IFRS financial measures should not be viewed as substitutes for revenue, other income, results from operating activities (EBIT), profit/(loss) for the period, cash flows from operating activities at period end or other income statement or cash flow items computed in accordance with IFRS. The non-IFRS financial measures do not necessarily indicate whether cash flow will be sufficient or available to meet our cash requirements and may not be indicative of our historical operating results, nor are such measures meant to be predictive of our future results. Pro Forma EBITDA and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for, an analysis of our results as reported under IFRS. Some of these limitations are:

  • they do not reflect cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • they do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs;
  • they do not reflect the significant interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on debt; and
  • although depreciation, amortization and impairment are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will generally need to be replaced in the future and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA (excluding NRIs), Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Pro Forma Further Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements that would be required for such replacements.

We have presented these non-IFRS measures because we consider them to be important supplemental measures of our performance and believe that they are widely used by investors comparing performance between companies. Since not all companies compute these or other non-IFRS financial measures in the same way, the manner in which our management has chosen to compute the non-IFRS financial measures presented herein may not be comparable with similarly defined terms used by other companies.
