The Company early adopted the amended standard with retrospective restatement effective September 1, 2012 and the impact of adoption is outlined in Note 2 of the consolidated financial statements.
(ii) Presentation of Financial Statements
IAS 1, Presentation of Financial Statements, was amended to require presentation of items of other comprehensive income based on whether they may be reclassified to the statement of income and has been applied retrospectively.
(iii) Income Taxes
IAS 12, Income Taxes (amended 2011), introduces an exception to the general measurement requirements of IAS 12 in respect of investment properties measured at fair value. The amendment had no impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.
The Company's preliminary view with respect to 2013 guidance was provided coincident with the release of its fourth quarter results on October 25, 2012 and subsequently updated with the release of its second quarter results on April 12, 2013. With continued positive momentum across all divisions and overall management of promotional activity and costs the Company is now further updating its guidance. The Company anticipates modest growth in consolidated revenue and operating income before amortization. During fiscal 2013 the Company plans to continue to enhance its network, provide innovative product offerings, and launch the Anik G1 satellite and expects consolidated capital investment, excluding the capital funded through the accelerated capital fund, to decline marginally from 2012 levels. The Company expects consolidated free cash flow to range from $590 to $600 million.
Certain important assumptions for 2013 guidance purposes include: continued overall customer growth; stable pricing environment for Shaw's products relative to current rates; no significant market disruption or other significant changes in economic conditions, competition or regulation that would have a material impact; stable advertising demand and rates; and a stable regulatory environment.

CAUTION CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Statements included in this MD&A that are not historic constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable securities laws. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements about future capital expenditures, asset dispositions, financial guidance for future performance, business strategies and measures to implement strategies, competitive strengths, expansion and growth of Shaw's business and operations and other goals and plans. They can generally be identified by words such as "anticipate", "believe", "expect", "plan", "intend", "target", "goal" and similar expressions (although not all forward-looking statements contain such words). All of the forward-looking statements made in this report are qualified by these cautionary statements.
Forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and analyses made by Shaw in light of its experience and its perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments as well as other factors it believes are appropriate in the circumstances as of the current date. These assumptions include, but are not limited to, general economic conditions, interest and exchange rates, technology deployment, content and equipment costs, industry structure, conditions and stability, government regulation and the integration of recent acquisitions. Many of these assumptions are confidential.
