 Commercial irregularities discovered at Reebok India Company
As announced in an ad hoc release on April 30, 2012, commercial irregularities were discovered at Reebok India Company. The discovery of these irregularities resulted in the identification of material errors in the prior period financial statements of Reebok India Company. As a consequence of these errors, material misstatements are also included in the consolidated financial statements of adidas AG for the 2011 financial year and for previous financial years, which have to be corrected in accordance with IAS 8. 
 
These corrections are reflected in the consolidated financial statements as at December 31, 2012, in which the comparative figures for the year 2011 are restated and the opening balance sheet for 2011 is corrected to the extent that earlier periods are affected. The results of these restatements led to a reduction of net income attributable to shareholders of € 58 million for 2011. In addition, shareholders' equity of the opening balance sheet for 2011 is negatively impacted by € 153 million.
