Effective 1 January 2010, the IASB clarified the scope exemption in IAS 39.2 (g) with regard to the maturity of transactions related to the sale of shares required for settlement. Forward transactions no longer fall under the exemption provided by IAS 39.2 (g) if it is clear when a contract is entered into that the settlement of such transactions exceeds the time required. For the presentation of the Postbank sale, this means that the forward transaction embedded in the mandatory exchangeable bond, which was previously not recognised, must now be recognised. The forward transaction was recognised in profit or loss as at 1 January 2010 at its fair value of €1,453 million. The value of the forward declined to €1,451 million as at 30 June 2010. Changes in this fair value at the subsequent reporting dates may continue to affect net finance costs/net financial income; Note 9.
