RTL Group uses various key performance indicators (KPIs) to control its financial situation, including revenue, audience share in main target groups, EBITDA and EBITA, RTL Group Value Added (RVA), net debt, and cash conversion. RTL Group uses some of the KPIs to set targets and to control business development in the context of its corporate strategy. For definitions and more details of these KPIs, see note 3 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report 2018.

RTL Group is reverting back to guidance on EBITA in its outlook statement. The Group believes this will provide a better operational KPI than continuing to use EBITDA. The Group notes that the analyst community continues to use EBITA – some on an exclusive basis – as the main KPI for the Group’s profitability. Reverting back to EBITA will therefore align the Group’s guidance to the expectations of the investment community. In addition, the Groups EBITDA will be affected by the new IFRS 16 (Leases) standard from 2019 onwards. Both EBITDA and EBITA will continue to be reported on for the Group’s business segments. As outlook guidance will revert back to EBITA, RTL Group will also comment primarily on EBITA as the KPI for operating profit in 2019.

RTL Group reports different alternative performance measures not defined by IFRS that management believe are relevant for measuring the performance of the Group’s operations, financial position and cash flows, and for making decisions. These KPIs also provide additional information for users of the financial statements regarding the management of the Group on a consistent basis over time and regularity of reporting.

RTL Group’s KPIs may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other groups due to differences in the way these measures are calculated.
