Kojamo plc to use yield-based valuation technique in the valuation of its investment properties

Kojamo plc has decided to change from so-called transaction-based valuation technique to yield-based valuation technique in the valuation of its investment properties as of 31 December 2019. The is a change in accounting estimate by nature and its possible effects will be recognized in the accounting period when the change occurs. The change is not accounted for retrospectively.

Kojamo plc values its investment properties in fair value in accordance with IAS 40. Majority of Kojamo plc's investment property portfolio is currently valued using so-called transaction-based valuation technique. The company's international peers, however, are mainly using yield-based valuation technique. Kojamo plc's change into using yield-based valuation technique in the valuation of its investment properties makes Kojamo plc more comparable with its relevant international peer group.

Kojamo plc will look into the possible effects of the change and disclose any possible impact of the change in the fair value of the company's investment properties, profit or loss and financial position separately, to the extent necessary.
