International Financial Reporting
The European Union (EU) has passed a regulation that requires
listed European companies to comply with International Financial
Reporting Standards (IFRS) in 2005 for their consolidated financial
statements. There is a limited exception for certain companies
to delay implementation until 2007.
Generally, the regulation applies to consolidated financial
statements for accounting periods starting on or after January
1, 2005. Thus for those companies with 12-month accounting
periods covering the calendar year, IFRS will first apply
to periods ending on December 31, 2005. As a result, companies
will first publish IFRS financial information as at March
31, 2005 (if they report quarterly) or as of June 30, 2005
(if they report semi-annually). In the 2.5 release, First
Call/IBES EPS estimates for EU based companies are redefined
to comply with the new IFRS regulations. The definition of
EPS estimates will be brought in line with the current EBG
definition, pre exceptional, pre-goodwill or fully adjusted.
As company estimates switch to the IFRS basis, our estimate
data will reflect the IFRS standards. All existing online
estimate reports reflecting the IFRS standard will include
a footnote, i.e. "Estimates are on an IFRS Basis as of
3/18/2005." In addition, two new data items are now available
in the Excel add in to indicate when a company is IFRS compliant.
The new data items are "IFRSCompliant" and "IFRSSwitchDate."
