All the numbers have been taken as per the IFRS standards estimates and in arriving at the estimates, high, median and low considerations have been taken alongwith the use of the standard deviation over the past 5 years data. The growth in sales over the nest 3 years has been assumed to be 6.93%, 6.53% and 5.20% respectively over 2018, 2019 and 2020 and the growth in EBIT has been considered to be 11.11%, 8.85% and 7.01%.
