The consumer packaging giant restated last year’s accounts today in line with new International Financial Reporting Standards.

Rexam does not have to amortise goodwill under the new rules, which added £75 million to its profits after tax, up to £207 million from £121 million.

The group was also affected by accounting changes to its goodwill in reserves, deferred tax, share-based payments and functional currency changes.
