Important Note: EBITDA and profit before taxes for the comparative period of 2017 are adjusted downwards with:

∙ 2 350 000 BGN representing the ten mounts period of 2017 effect stemming from the correction of the accounting error with respect to the non-elimination of intragroup profit on unrealized inventory. More details about the accounting error could be found in the consolidated audited financial report of Monbat as at 31.12.2017

∙ 1 957 000 BGN with respect to the effect on the ten mounts period of 2017 comparative figures coming from the lack of government subsidy in Monbat Recycling Serbia. The expected subsidy was initially accounted in the Consolidated Financial Statements of Monbat AD for 2017 but was consequently reversed due to the occurrence of adjusting subsequent events which are described in more detail in the consolidated audited financial report of Monbat as at 31.12.2017
