Note 1: Normalised headline earnings per share
Normalised headline earnings per share is one of the measurement bases Hulamin uses in assessing
financial performance and is calculated in a consistent manner as per the latest annual financial
statements, by dividing normalised headline earnings by the weighted average number of ordinary
shares in issue during the year.

Normalised headline earnings is defined as headline earnings excluding (i) metal price lag and (ii) non-
trading expense or income items which, due to their irregular occurrence, are removed in order to
more closely present earnings attributable to the ongoing activities of the Group. For H1 2021,
normalised headline earnings include an adjustment for metal price lag and restructuring costs.

The presentation of normalised headline earnings is not an IFRS requirement and may not be directly
comparable with the same or similar measures disclosed by other companies.
