PANDORA CHANGES FINANCIAL REPORTING STRUCTURE

PANDORA today announces that it will change the financial reporting structure starting with the Company's interim report for Q1 2016. The purpose of the new reporting structure is to offer a more transparent, balanced and relevant financial reporting, reflecting the development in the Company in the years following PANDORA's initial public offering (IPO) in October 2010.

PANDORA's new financial reporting will have a more symmetric structure, centralised around the three already established regions: Americas, EMEA (previously Europe) and Asia Pacific.

The new financial reporting will include:

  • Revenue, like-for-like sales-out growth and revenue per store type on regions
  • Global like-for-like sales-out growth
  • Country specific revenue and like-for-like sales-out growth will not, as historically, be reported on a quarterly basis, however it will be part of reporting, when found necessary to explain the development in the three regions
  • Gold, silver and white stores and travel retail will be categorised as multibranded stores and will be reported as one, both in terms of revenue and number of stores
  • An updated definition of 3rd party distributors (please refer to appendix for lists of 3rd party distributor countries)
  • Silver and gold bracelets and Other bracelets (currently reported as part of Other jewellery) will be reported as one, and consequently Other jewellery will consist of Earrings and Necklaces only
  • Costs previously categorised as unallocated costs will be allocated to the three geographical regions
  • Average selling price (ASP) and volume development will not be part of the financial reporting.

Please refer to appendix for comparative figures provided for the last 8 quarters based on the new financial reporting structure.

The content of this release will have no impact on PANDORA's outlook for 2016, as latest communicated to the market in in connection with the 2015 annual report on 9 February 2016.
