EQL Pharma is switching to function-based accounting

EQL Pharma changes the presentation of the income statement to function-based accounting from the financial year 2020/21.

In Sweden there are two allowed formats of the income statement in accordance with the Annual Accounts Act (1995: 1554), the expense category based and classified by function.

Under the K3 regulations that EQL Pharma applies, both forms of set-up can be used and EQL Pharma has used the cost-based set-up since the company's start. As an adjustment prior to the transition to IFRS, EQL Pharma will, from the first quarter of 2020/21, present the function-based income statement.

The first report with the function-based income statement will be published on August 27, 2020. EQL Pharma will strive to recalculate the comparative figures for previous years, in order to increase the possibilities for comparison.
