CORE Definition

Lonza believes that disclosing CORE results of the Group´s performance enhances the financial markets´ understanding of our company because the CORE results enable better comparison across years.

Therefore, the CORE results exclude exceptional items such as restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs, environmental-remediation costs, impairments and amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, which can differ significantly from year to year. For this same reason, Lonza uses these CORE results in addition to IFRS as important factors in internally assessing the Group´s performance.
