Guidance Annual Result 2012
The impact of the new affiliation contract with the Employee Pension Fund of the Canton of Zurich (BVK) on the pension fund liability has been indicated last November with a range of 120 – 135 million Swiss Francs. The impact of all IAS 19 components considered in the 2012 Year End Results amounts to 122 million Swiss Francs (pre-tax, non-cash), which will be recognised in the “personnel expenses” line-item.
Further to this, the financial result will be positively affected against earlier guidance by approximately 15 million Swiss Francs (pre-tax) due to two non-cash valuation items (approximately 30 million Swiss Francs foreign exchange gain on the Japanese Private Placement. This is triggered by the distinctive JPY weakness against CHF in December 2012, which is favourable as the currency development of this loan has been hedged to a large extent only / approximately 15 million Swiss Francs finance charge due to reassessment of the interest rate for discounting noise provisions and the timing of respective cash outflows).
Flughafen Zürich AG therefore anticipates 2012 Year End Results (incl. / excl. noise) to be accordingly higher than previously expected.
The detailed figures will be communicated as part of the presentation of the year end results of Flughafen Zürich AG on March 20, 2013.
