Instruments not quoted on active markets, for which the fair value cannot be estimated reliably
Basic assets of the Group classified as available-for-sale financial assets are shares in entities not quoted on active markets. For shares in entities that are not quoted on the stock exchange, there is no active market nor possibility to use measurement techniques that will give reliable values. Due to the above, the Group is not able to establish reasonable fair value estimates. Such assets are measured at cost less impairment losses.
