In accordance with IFRS 8 "Operating Segments", an operating segment is defined as a business activity whose operating results are reviewed by the chief operating decision-maker ("CODM") and for which discrete information is available. Operating segments are reported in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the CODM, as required by IFRS 8. The CODM, who is responsible for allocating resources and assessing performance of the operating segments, has been identified as the Executive Directors.
The principal activities of the Group are currently managed as one segment. Consequently, all activities relate to this segment.
The CODM's main indicator of performance of the segment is EBITDA, which is reconciled to operating profit below the Consolidated Income Statement.
