Fair value

The Group can apply various methods in estimating the fair value of a financial instrument. The methods comprise:

a) Level 1 — the fair value is calculated using quoted prices in active markets:

b) Level 2 — the fair value is estimated using inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or

liability, either directly (as prices) or indirectly (derived from prices); and

c) Level 3 — the fair value is estimated using inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data.

Derivative financial instruments are classified as Level 2 and are valued using mid values of the forward contracts as determined by the

New Zealand Debt Management Office based on inputs that are observable.

There were no transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 during the year.

The increase in employee numbers who have earned $100,000 or more in FY17 compared to FY16 is due to high employee turnover in

the previous year resulting in a full years’ salary in the current year and salary increases pushing a few just above $100,000.
