On 16 December 2022, Loihde Plc (also ‘Loihde’ or ‘the Group’) announced that it has decided to adopt International Financial Reporting Standards (‘IFRS’) for its financial reporting.

Until 30 September 2022, Loihde prepared its annual and half-yearly financial statements in accordance with Finnish Accounting Standards (FAS). In order to provide its investors with comparative information already before the publication of the consolidated financial statements for the financial year 2022, Loihde publishes for the financial year ended 31 December 2021 and for the six-month period ended 30 June 2022:
