RTL Group uses various key performance indicators (KPIs) to control its businesses, including revenue, EBITDA, EBITA and Adjusted EBITA, RTL Group Value Added (RVA), net debt, cash conversion and audience share in main target groups.

Some of the RTL Group’s key performance indicators are determined on the basis of so-called alternative performance measures which are not defined by IFRS. Management believe that they 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.

For definitions and more details on these KPIs (Adjusted EBITA excepted), see note 3 to the consolidated financial statements in the Annual Report 2019.

As announced in the outlook of the Annual Report 2018 the RTL Group reverted back to guidance on EBITA in its outlook statement. The Group believes this provides 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 therefore aligns the Group’s guidance to the expectations of the investment community. In addition, the Group’s EBITDA is affected by the application of the IFRS 16 (Leases) from 2019 onwards. As a result, RTL Group also comments primarily on EBITA as the KPI for measuring profitability. For purposes of comparability both EBITDA and EBITA are reported on for the Group’s business segments in this Directors’ report.

Further, in order to determine a sustainable operating result that could be repeated under normal economic circumstances and which is not affected by special factors or structural distortions EBITA is adjusted for special items. These special items primarily include restructuring costs and streaming start-up losses.

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