Pursuant to the internal reporting standards, adopted at the level of Cyfrowy Polsat S.A.

In accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards, deferred income tax assets and liabilities are recognized in the consolidated balance sheet of Cyfrowy Polsat Group in relation to the carrying and tax values relating to individual elements of Cyfrowy Polsat Group’s net assets.

The analysis resulted in the necessity to increase the value of the item “Deferred income tax liabilities” in the consolidated balance sheet of Cyfrowy Polsat Group as at December 31, 2018 by the amount of ca.
