The IASB published additions to IAS 32 “Financial Instru- ments” (description of balancing financial assets and finan- cial liabilities) in December 2011. The additions specify ­requirements for balancing financial assets and financial liabilities. The additions are not expected to have a signifi- cant impact on Software AG.
