In addition to financial information prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and derived from our financial statements, the above information contains certain financial ratios that may represent alternative performance indicators (“APMs”), as defined in the European Financial Markets Authority`s (ESMF) Alternative Performance Measures Guidelines of 5 October 2015 (AEMF/2015/1415) and other non-IFRS measures (non-IFRS measures). These CDMs and non-IFRS were calculated on the basis of Santander Group`s financial information, but are not defined or detailed in the context of current financial information and have not been audited or verified by our auditors. While we believe that these apMs and non-IFRS measures are useful in evaluating our activities, this information should be considered as additional information and not as an alternative to IFRS ratios. In addition, other companies, including companies in our sector, may calculate or apply such measures differently, reducing their usefulness as comparison measures. For more details on the APM and non-IFRS measures used by Banco Santander, S.A.
