6 2021 PARENT COMPANY FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Notes to the income statement
The actual staff expense is not recognised until the date shares p are delivered under the plan. This expense is measured at the purchase cost of the vested free shares. For multi-year plans contingent upon conditions related to p performance and/or continued employment, a provision for contingencies is set aside on a straight-line basis over the vesting period in recognition of the probable outflow of
resources when the decision or intention to award shares bought back is established. This provision is reassessed at each financial year-end taking into account the opening cost of the shares on the date they were assigned to the plan or the cost of shares yet to vest, measured on the basis of the share price at the balance sheet date, and the probability that the plans will
be implemented at the stated terms.

NET FINANCIAL INCOME
Foreign exchange gains and losses mainly arise from transactions carried out in pounds sterling, Norwegian kroner and US dollars. In 2021, this item was mainly affected by the revaluation of financial debt outstanding denominated in pounds sterling.
In light of the financial difficulties encountered by the Singapore subsidiary Sopra Steria Asia, the Company fully impaired its equity interest in that subsidiary (see Note 5.1.3.b) and recognised an additional expense in respect of that portion of the risk exceeding its investment (see Note 5.4).
