As used herein, the terms “LafargeHolcim”, “Holcim” or the “Group” refer to LafargeHolcim Ltd together with the companies included in the scope of consolidation. Holcim Ltd was renamed to LafargeHolcim Ltd following the merger with Lafarge S.A. on July 10, 2015.

For the purpose of the proposed merger, the 2014 pro forma information that was included in the Registration Document registered on May 11, 2015 reflected only the effect of the merger Lafarge/Holcim and its direct consequences (notably the divestments to CRH) as known at that time. Now with the merger completed, the pro forma financial information included on the marked pages of this annual report, in addition to the merger and the latest changes in the scope of the divestments achieved in the context of the merger Lafarge/Holcim, also reflects the impact of merger, restructuring and other one-offs, the deconsolidation of the Australian business operated under a joint-venture and the effect of the divestments achieved over the course of 2014 and 2015. These figures do not take into consideration any purchase price accounting impact on operating EBITDA which mainly relates to inventory valuation.

The unaudited pro forma numbers that were previously published in order to provide meaningful like-for-like analysis of the business were reviewed. Some inconsistencies were identified with respect to scope and classification of prior periods and these have been corrected. Operating EBITDA 2014 has been amended by CHF –57 million (Oct–Dec 2014: CHF –63 million) to correctly reflect scope changes. In addition, cash flow from operating activities July-Sept 2015 has been corrected by CHF 293 m through reclassification of certain debt holder transactions to financing activities. The Audited Financial Statements are not impacted.
