Diageo plc publishes re-presented US Dollar financial information
This document contains selected unaudited re-presented historical consolidated financial information of Diageo group (Diageo plc and its subsidiaries - Diageo) as of and for the years ended 30 June 2021, 30 June 2022 and 30 June 2023 and the six months ended 31 December 2021 and 31 December 2022 reflecting a change in the presentation currency of Diageo plc from sterling to US dollar. This document is published to help the understanding of Diageo's past performance and financial position on a represented basis, in US dollar. Diageo's unaudited interim financial statements as at and for the six months ending 31 December 2023 will use US dollar as the presentation currency.
Further re-presented financial information including re-presented consolidated statement of changes in equity and consolidated statement of cash flows will be published for the years ended 30 June 2021, 30 June 2022 and 30 June 2023 in January 2024.
This document also contains certain non-GAAP measures, including organic movements, calculated and reconciled to the relevant GAAP measure in US dollar. These non-GAAP measures are chosen for planning and reporting, and some of them are used for incentive purposes. The group’s management believes that these measures provide valuable additional information for users of the financial statements in understanding the group’s performance. These non-GAAP measures should be viewed as complementary to and not replacements for the comparable GAAP measures and reported movements therein. Note that the representation to US dollar did not result in any material change to organic growth movements for any of the periods, geographical segments or key categories. See “Definitions and reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures” for more information.
Change in the functional and presentation currency
Starting 1 July 2023, in line with reporting requirements, the functional currency of Diageo plc has changed from sterling to US dollar which is applied prospectively. This is because the group's share of net sales and expenses in the US and other countries whose currencies correlate closely with the US dollar has been increasing over the years, and that trend is expected to continue in line with the group's strategic focus. Diageo has also decided to change its presentation currency to US dollar with effect from 1 July 2023, applied retrospectively, as it believes that this change will provide better alignment of the reporting of performance with its business exposures.
The selected unaudited re-presented financial information included in this document has been derived from the consolidated financial statements and accounting records of Diageo for each of the years ended 30 June 2021, 30 June 2022 and 30 June 2023 and for each of the six months ended 31 December 2021 and 31 December 2022, prior to retrospectively applying the change in the presentation currency.
