Total comprehensive (expense)/income for the financial year from discontinued operations Attributable to owners of the parent 537 The consideration for Vodafone Italy is comprised of €8 billion cash to be paid on completion. A proportion of the consideration is related to future services to be provided by the Group to Swisscom. For the year ended 31 March 2024, the Group recorded a non-cash charge of €83 million (pre and post-tax), included in discontinued operations, as a result of the re-measurement of Vodafone Italy to its fair value less costs to sell. The charge mostly results from the non-recognition of €93 million (€67 million net of tax) depreciation and amortisation of non-current assets from the date Vodafone Italy was classified as held for sale. (71) 80 The fair value of the Group’s equity interest at 31 March 2024 was determined with reference to the consideration expected to be received from the agreed sale to Swisscom, less adjustments for estimated completion adjustments, consideration for future services to be received by Swisscom from the Group and the elimination of intercompany debt. This approach was considered to result in a level 2 valuation in accordance with IFRS 13 as, certain completion related adjustments and estimates of the value of the future services to be provided, are not observable.
