The group uses the alternative
key ratio Operating profit excluding depreciation

of capitalized development costs
has on operating profit.
Closing equity in the period divided by closing total assets in the period
The group uses the alternative performance measure equity/assets ratio because it illustrates the portion of the total assets that consist of equity and has been included so investors will be able to assess the group’s capital structure.
