The consensus summary was produced in April 2023 and prior to that was last updated in January 2023. Consensus figures in the tables above are based on forecasts to the extent they were provided by 13 analysts who have updated models since the Q1 23 Trading Update published by Virgin Money UK PLC (“Virgin Money”) and its subsidiaries dated 01 February 2023.
Previously Virgin Money has included fair value adjustments arising from hedge ineffectiveness in the underlying non-interest income line in the underlying P&L. With effect from Virgin Money’s 2023 Interim Financial Results, to give a clearer picture of operational performance these fair value adjustments arising from hedge ineffectiveness will be moved out of underlying non-interest income, to be included with exceptional items as an adjustment to underlying earnings. Prior period comparatives will also be restated accordingly. All analyst models included in the consensus summary have had this change reflected. Figures provided by analysts that do not relate to a specific line item have been excluded.
