(1) Economic Value Added (EVA) principles are in use throughout the
Group, whereby risk adjusted capital is allocated and charged against
business units. Equity standardised profit is determined by
eliminating the impact of earnings on each business unit's book
capital and attributing earnings on the business unit's risk adjusted
capital. This enhances comparability of business unit performance.
Geographic results are not equity standardised.
