The standards and interpretations discussed below are those which EYNL reasonably expects to have an impact on disclosures, financial position or performance when applied at a future date. EYNL intends to adopt these standards when they become effective.

IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers5
IFRS 15 establishes a five-step model to account for revenue arising from contracts with customers. Under IFRS 15, revenue is recognised at an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring goods or services to a customer. The new revenue standard will supersede all current revenue recognition requirements under IFRS. EYNL is assessing the impact of this standard.

IFRS 16 Leases5
IFRS 16 requires lessees to account for all leases under a single on-balance sheet model (subject to certain exemptions) in a similar way to finance leases under IAS 17 with recognition exemptions for leases of ’low-value’ assets and short-term leases. Lessees recognise a liability to pay rentals with a corresponding asset, and recognise interest expense and depreciation separately. Reassessment of certain key considerations (e.g., lease term, variable rents based on an index or rate, discount rate) by the lessee is required upon certain events. Lessor accounting is substantially the same as today’s lessor accounting, using IAS 17’s dual classification approach. IFRS 16 also requires lessees and lessors to make more extensive disclosures than under IAS 17. EYNL will assess the impact of IFRS 16.
