Independent Auditor’s Report
To InVision Aktiengesellschaft
We have audited the consolidated financial statements prepared by InVision Aktiengesellschaft – consisting of the balance sheet, income statement, statement of changes in equity, the cash flow statement and the notes to the consolidated financial statements together with the Group management report – for the period 1 January 2016 through 31 December 2016. The preparation of the consolidated financial statements and the Group management report in accordance with IFRS, as adopted by the EU, and with the additional requirements of the German Commercial Code under § 315a (1) HGB is the responsibility of the Executive Board of InVision Aktiengesellschaft. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the IFRS consolidated financial statements and the Group management report based on our audit.
We have conducted our audit of the consolidated financial statements in accordance with § 317 HGB and the German generally accepted standards for the audits of financial statements promulgated by the German Institute of Auditors (Institute of Wirtschaftsprüfer or IDW). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit such that any misstatements and violations, which materially affect the presentation of the net assets, financial position and results of operation in the IFRS consolidated financial statements and Group management report, are detected with reasonable assurance. Knowledge of the business activities and the economic and legal environment of the Group and expectations as to possible misstatements are taken into account in the determination of the audit procedures. The effectiveness of the accounting-related internal control system and the evidence supporting the disclosures in the consolidated financial statements and the Group management report are examined primarily on a test basis within the framework of the audit. The audit includes the assessment of the annual financial statements of the companies included in the consolidated financial statements, the determination of the companies to be included in the consolidation, the accounting and consolidation principles used and significant estimates made by statutory representatives, as well as the evaluation of the overall presentation of the IFRS consolidated financial statements and the Group management report. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
Our audit has not led to any reservations.
In our opinion, based on the findings of our audit, the consolidated financial statements comply with IFRS, as adopted by the EU, the additional requirements of German commercial law pursuant to § 315a (1) HGB and give a true and fair view of the net assets, financial position and results of operation of the Group in accordance with these requirements. The Group management report is consistent with the IFRS consolidated financial statements, complies with the legal requirements, and as a whole provides a suitable view of the Company’s situation and suitably presents the opportunities and risks of future development.
