PRO FORMA FIGURES Pro Forma Adjustments The unaudited pro forma financial information has been prepared as if the divestment of the Terni remedy assets and the VDM business to ThyssenKrupp, rights issue and refinancing measures had been completed on January 1, 2013 for the purposes of the unaudited pro forma consolidated statement of income and unaudited pro forma statement of comprehensive income for the year 2013, and on December 31, 2013 for the purposes of the unaudited pro forma consolidated statement of financial position as at December 31, 2013. The unaudited pro forma financial information is based on the financial information derived from the Outokumpu’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year 2013. The unaudited pro forma financial information was prepared on a basis consistent with IFRS as adopted by the EU and been prepared in a manner consistent with the accounting principles applied in Outokumpu’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year 2013. The unaudited pro forma financial information has been prepared for illustrative purposes and, because of its nature, addresses a hypothetical situation and therefore, do not represent Outokumpu’s actual financial position or results of operations. The pro forma adjustments are based upon available information and assumptions. There can be no assurance that the assumptions used in the preparation of the unaudited pro forma financial information will prove to be correct. Pro forma adjustment I below has been made to represent the divestment of the Terni remedy assets and the VDM business to ThyssenKrupp on February, 28, 2014 in consideration for the loan note. The final values of disposed assets and liabilities can only be determined based on the financial statements on the completion date. They may differ significantly from the values presented in the pro forma financial information based on financial information as at December 31, 2013. The divestment agreement also included terms and conditions regarding the level of working capital and net financial debt of the divested entities which can only be finally determined based on the financial statements on the completion date of the divestment. Under certain circumstances these items could have an impact on Outokumpu’s net debt and the gain or loss on the divestment presented in the pro forma financial information. The following describes the main components of the adjustments made in the pro forma financial information: Pro Forma Adjustment I Pro forma adjustment I reflects Outokumpu’s divestment of the Terni remedy assets and the VDM business to ThyssenKrupp on February, 28, 2014 in consideration for the loan note, which is included in the consolidated statement of financial position as at December 31, 2013. The net result of the divestment is assumed to be zero in the pro forma financial information. As a result of the divestment, the assets and liabilities classified as held for sale in Outokumpu’s consolidated statement of financial position were disposed of and have been deducted from the respective line items in the pro forma consolidated statement of financial position. In the pro forma statement of consolidated income, the results of the divested entities for the year 2013 have been reversed from the line item net results for the financial year from discontinued operations. The loan note used as consideration for the divestment, including capitalized interest, has been deducted from long-term debt in the pro forma consolidated statement of financial position. Also an interest liability related to the loan note and recognized using the effective interest method has been deducted from current trade and other liabilities. Interest expenses related to the loan note have been reversed in the pro forma consolidated statement of income. Intra-group trade and other receivables and trade and other payables between Outokumpu and divested entities remain in force at the date of divestment and, following the completion of the divestment, become external receivables and payables of Outokumpu. Their assumed net impact has been added in trade and other payables in the pro forma consolidated statement of financial position. Pro Forma Adjustment II Pro forma adjustment II reflects the impact arising from the rights issue on Outokumpu’s cash and cash equivalents and shareholders’ equity. The net proceeds from the rights issue are assumed to remain in Outokumpu’s cash and cash equivalents. Pro Forma Adjustment III Pro forma adjustment III reflects the impact of the refinancing measures dated February 28, 2014. The adjustment assumes that certain amounts have been drawn under the new revolving facility to repay the previous facility and the TK revolving backup facility. The maturities of certain loan facilities have been extended in accordance with the new financing agreements. In addition, the adjustment reflects the costs of the refinancing measures, including new EUR 500 million syndicated loan facility and Outokumpu’s security package to secure its notes and most of its debt financing. In the pro forma consolidated statement of financial position, the loans and revolving facilities resulting from the refinancing measures and loans and revolving facilities of a long-term nature have been recognized initially at fair value, net of transaction costs incurred. Transfers of loans from current debt to long-term debt results from the extension of the maturities of the extended facilities. The assumed impacts of the refinance measures on interest and other financial expenses have been recognized in the pro forma consolidated statement of income.
