NOTE 5 COST OF EMPLOYEE BENEFITS
Groupe ADP offers benefits to employees such as end-of-career indemnities and health coverage to some of its retiring employees. The main benefit plans are described below. These benefits are classified and accounted for in accordance with IAS 19 applicable since 1 January 2013 “Employee benefits”. Post-employment benefits – Defined contributions plans Defined contributions plans are post-employment benefit plans under which the Group’s commitment is limited solely to the payment of contributions. The contributions paid are expensed in the period in which they occur. Post-employment benefits – Defined benefit plans Defined benefit plans entail an obligation for the Group to pay an amount or a level of defined benefits. This obligation is recognized as a provision based on an actuarial estimate. The measurement method used is the projected unit credit method. It consists in estimating the amount of future benefits acquired by employees in exchange for services rendered in the current and prior periods. Estimates are performed at least once a year by an independent actuary. They rely on assumptions such as life expectancy, staff turnover, and wages forecasts. The discount rate used at year-end is based on first-class bonds of which the maturity date is close to that of the Group’s commitments. When these plans are funded by external funding and meet the definition of plan assets, the provision is reduced by the fair value of plan assets. This provision is broken down into: ◆ service costs: they are recognized in the operating income together with other staff expenses; ◆ net interest on the net defined liability (including interests from the plan ’ s assets), which include the accretion expense of the liability and the implicit revenue of return on assets;
◆ re-measurements of the net defined benefit liability, which comprise actuarial gains and losses, and the difference between the return on plan assets and interest income on plan assets (included in net interests). They are recognized immediately and fully in other comprehensive income (OCI). In case of a plan amendment, a curtailment or a liquidation, past service costs are recognized immediately in income. Other long term employee benefits Other long term employee benefits include items such as aeronautics industry long-service awards payable to employees of Aéroports de Paris SA, and the corresponding distinguished service bonuses. These are benefits of which the settlement date is expected to exceed 12 months after the end of the reporting period in which the employees render the related services. Measurement and accounting methods are similar to those used for defined benefit plans except for re-measurements that are recognized immediately in income, and not OCI (equity). Termination benefits Termination benefits payable as a result of voluntary redundancy plan are recognized as a liability and expense at the earlier of the following dates: ◆ date on which the Group can no longer withdraw the offer of those benefits; or ◆ date on which the Group recognizes costs for restructuring that involves the payment of termination benefits. Concerning the non-recurring elements, the expense is recognized as other operating income and expenses in the income statement. Actuarial hypotheses are presented in paragraph 5.2.3.
