Thanks.

Hi Yong,
 
Yes your profit should be adjusted after you add/remove extraordinary item.

Thanks. was looking at formula of CashFlow to Net Profit ratio. It was based upon the non-adjusted NP. Should I take the adjusted NP instead?

Was watching the videos, the NP taken is it the pre-tax or post-tax allocation amount? I believe in the video the example used was a pre-tax, hence it was a higher NP. Thanks!

Hi Yong,
 
Cash Flow to net profit is based on the non-adjusted NP.
 
For net profit, please take the post tax figure.
