2.2. Preparation of financial statements

The subsidiary companies incorporated into these consolidated financial statements are as follows:

(i) Historical cost convention: The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a historical cost basis, except for certain financial assets and liabilities below: • Derivative financial instruments are measured at fair value. • The defined benefit plans are recognized at the present value of future obligations using the Projected Unit Credit Method. (ii) Functional and presentation currency: These consolidated financial statements are presented in Saudi Riyal (“SAR”), which is the Group’s functional and presentation currency. All amounts have been rounded to the nearest thousand, unless otherwise indicated. The Company and its subsidiaries are collectively referred to as the “Group”. Subsidiaries are entities controlled by the Group. Control is achieved when the Group is exposed, or has rights, to variable returns from its involvement with the investee and has the ability to affect those returns through its power over the investee. Specifically, the Group controls an investee if, and only if, the Group has: • Power over the investee (i.e., existing rights that give it the current ability to direct the relevant activities of the investee); • Exposure, or rights, to variable returns from its involvement in the investee; • The ability to use its power over the investee to affect its returns. The Group re-assesses whether or not it controls an investee if facts and circumstances indicate that there are changes to one or more of the three elements of control. Consolidation of a subsidiary begins when the Group obtains control over the subsidiary and ceases when the Group loses control of the subsidiary. Assets, liabilities, income and expenses of a subsidiary acquired or disposed of during the year are included in the consolidated financial statements from the date the Group gains control until the date the Group ceases to control the subsidiary. Profit or loss and each component of other comprehensive income (OCI) are attributed to the equity holders of the Parent Company and to the non-controlling interests, even if this results in the non-controlling interests having a deficit balance. When necessary, adjustments are made to the financial statements of subsidiaries to bring their accounting policies in line with the Group’s accounting policies. All intra-group assets and liabilities, unrealised income and expenses and cash flows relating to transactions are eliminated in full on consolidation. Non-controlling interest are measured at their proportionate share of the acquiree’s identifiable net assets at the date of acquisition with fair value. A change in the ownership interest of a subsidiary, without a loss of control, is accounted for as an equity transaction. If the Group loses control over a subsidiary, it: • De-recognizes the assets (including goodwill) and liabilities of the subsidiary; 3. BASIS OF CONSOLIDATION
