NET INTEREST-BEARING DEBT
The balance sheet debt may differ from Norske Skog's maturity profile, reflecting premiums or discounts on issued bonds and hedge reserve.
Norske Skog has recognised an amount on the balance sheet as a result of the termination of a large part of the fair value hedge portfolio. A hedge reserve (deferred income) amounting to NOK 196 million is included in interest-bearing debt as of 31 December 2012. The corresponding figure as of 31 December 2011 was NOK 270 million.
The hedge reserve does not constitute a payment obligation for the group, but will be amortised in the income statement over the lifetime of the hedged debt.
The carrying amount is not part of net interest-bearing debt.
