Deutsche Telekom AG - Interim Group report - January 1 to September 30, 2011

75Additional information Special factors. Deutsche Telekom’s net profit/loss and EBITDA of the Group and of the operat- ing segments were affected by a range of special factors in both the reporting period and the prior-year periods. The underlying aim is to eliminate special factors that affect operating activities and that make it more difficult to compare EBITDA, net profit/loss and other financial measures of the Group and the operating segments with correspond- ing figures for prior periods. In addition, statements about the future develop- ment of EBITDA and net profit are only possible to a limited extent due to such special factors. On the basis of the unadjusted financial measures, the adjusted values are calculated by adding (expenses) or deducting (income) the special factors. Adjustments are made irrespective of whether the relevant income and expenses are reported in profit/loss from operations, profit/loss from financial activities, or in tax expense. Income and expenses directly relating to the adjusted items are adjusted. The following table presents a reconciliation of EBIT/EBITDA and net profit/ loss to the respective figures adjusted for special factors. Reconciliations are presented for the reporting period, the prior-year period, and the full 2010 financial year.
