PAXMAN informs that the company has changed its accounting treatment regarding the acquisition of Paxman Group Limited.

Updated accounting treatment of internal acquisition improves PAXMAN’s net profit by 1.1 MSEK
In 2017 PAXMAN AB (publ) acquired the entire issued share capital of Paxman Group Limited by means of a share for share exchange. This transaction was one between legal entities under common control and as such PAXMAN AB (publ) has now been advised by its auditor that it should have been accounted for as an internal group restructuring rather than as an acquisition. The results as previously announced have been restated in the annual report to reflect this change in accounting treatment. The main effect is that the difference between the purchase price and the tangible net assets of Paxman Group Limited as at the date of the acquisition (13.6 MSEK) will no longer be reported as goodwill, but instead posted direct against equity. Consequently, the charge for goodwill amortization in 2017 has been reversed. This improves the net profit/loss for the year 2017 by 1.1 MSEK compared to the figure previously announced but reflects a change in accounting treatment only and has no impact on trading or cash.
