Correction to FY2020 Preliminary Results
Following release of the Group’s preliminary results for the year ended 31 December 2020 on 23 March 2021, an error in the mathematical calculation of the weighted average number of Ordinary shares was identified.
The correct weighted average number of Ordinary shares for the 12 months ended 31 December 2020 for the Basic EPS calculation is 531,062,798, and not 521,686,254 as originally stated in the preliminary results on 23 March 2021. The correct weighted average number of Ordinary shares for the Diluted EPS calculation is 537,318,838 and not 527,924,294 as originally stated in the preliminary results announcement on 23 March 2021.
This increase in the number of shares results in a small reduction to EPS measures which are correctly stated as follows:
Year ended 31 December 2020
As stated on 23 March 2021 (p)
Reported basic earnings per share
Reported diluted earnings per share
Underlying basic earnings per share
Underlying diluted earnings per share
The corrected numbers have been reflected in the Group’s 2020 Annual Report and Accounts and in the version of the FY2020 preliminary results statement available on Alliance’s website.
The detail of the EPS calculation is set out in note 10 of the Annual Report and Accounts.
