DEUTSCHEEUROSHOPANNUALREPORT2013/CONSOLIDATEDFINANCIALSTATEMENTS 147 INVESTEES Investments over which Deutsche EuroShop AG has neither significant influence nor control are measured at fair value, in line with the provisions of IAS 39. These include the investment in Ilwro Holding B.V. Amsterdam, into which the investment in Ilwro Joint Venture Sp zo.o. was incorporated in the year under review. CONSOLIDATION METHODS For purchase accounting, the cost is eliminated against the parent company’s interest in the re-valued equity of the subsidiaries at the date of acquisition or initial consolidation. Any remaining excess of identified net assets acquired over cost of acquisition is recognised as goodwill in intangible assets. Any excess of identified net assets acquired over cost of acquisition is recognised in income following a further reassessment. Joint ventures and associates are accounted for using the equity method. The cost of the investment is recognised in income at an amount increased or reduced by the changes in equity corresponding to the equity interest of Deutsche EuroShop AG. Intragroup transactions are eliminated as part of the consolidation of intercompany balances and of income and expenses. CURRENCY TRANSLATION The Group currency is the Euro (€). The companies located outside the eurozone that are included in the consolidated financial statements are treated as legally independent, but economically dependent, integrated companies. The reporting currency of this company (Polish zloty) therefore deviates from the functional currency (euro). Under IAS 21, annual financial statements prepared in foreign currencies are translated using the functional currency method, with the result that the balance sheet is to be translated as if the transactions had arisen for the Group itself, as the local currency of the integrated companies is deemed to be a foreign currency for these companies. Monetary values are therefore translated at the closing rate and non-monetary items at the rate that applied at the time of initial recognition. Non-monetary items to be reported at fair value are translated at the closing rate. Items in the consolidated income statement that are recognised in income are translated at average rates for the year or, in the event of strong fluctuations, using the rate that applied on the date of the transaction. Any translation differences that may arise if the translation rates of the balance sheet and consolidated income statement differ are recognised in profit or loss. A closing rate of HUF 296.91 (previous year: HUF 291.29) and an average rate of HUF 296.92 (previous year: HUF 289.42) were used in the translation of the separate Hungarian financial statements for Einkaufs-Center Arkaden Pécs KG, Hamburg, from forint to euros. A closing rate of PLN 4.1472 (previous year: PLN 4.0822) and an average rate of PLN 4.1975 (previous year: PLN 4.185) were taken as a basis for translating the separate financial statements of the Polish property company.
