1) EBITA and AEPS are our principal profit measures:
- EBITA represents operating profit from continuing operations pre-exceptional items on a proportionally consolidated basis and before the deduction of amortisation and is provided as it is a key unit of measurement used by the Group in the management of its business.
- Adjusted diluted earnings per share is calculated by dividing earnings before exceptional items and amortisation, net of tax, by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the period, excluding shares held by the Group's employee share ownership trusts and adjusted to assume conversion of all potentially dilutive ordinary shares.
2) EBITA is stated after costs related to asbestos.  EBITA is also stated after costs synergies related to the acquisition of Amec Foster Wheeler but before one-off costs to realise those synergies.
3) The weighted average number of ordinary shares used to calculate adjusted diluted earnings per share is 680.3m pro-forma.
