Sensitivity analysis - equity securities
An increase or decrease of 1% in the share price of the equity securities at the reporting date would not
have a material impact.
For other receivables HEINEKEN determines on each reporting date the impairment using an expected
credit loss model which estimates the credit losses over 12 months. Only in case a significant increase
in credit risk occurs (e.g. more than 30 days overdue, change in credit rating, payment delays in
other receivables from the customer) the credit losses over the lifetime of the asset are incurred.
Individually significant other receivables are tested for impairment on an individual basis. The remaining
financial assets are assessed collectively in groups that share similar credit risk characteristics. For more
information on HEINEKEN's credit risk exposure refer to note 11.5.
Fair value through OCI investments
HEINEKEN's investments in equity securities are classified as fair value through other comprehensive
income (OCI). These investments are interests in entities where HEINEKEN has less than significant
influence. This is generally the case by ownership of less than 20% of the voting rights.
Fair value through OCI investments are measured at fair value (refer to note 13.1). The fair value changes
are recognised in OCI and presented within equity in the fair value reserve. Dividend income and foreign
exchange gains and losses are recognised in profit or loss.
Please refer to the accounting policies on derivative financial instruments in note 11.6.
The remaining non-current assets as presented in the table above are initially measured at fair value and
subsequently at amortised cost minus any impairment losses.
