on a comparable basis
à périmetre constant Source
OBS – On a comparable basis, or
any number of expressions along
those lines. Simply means the
companies (subsidiaries etc.)
consolidated are unchanged, or
that account has been taken of
changes in the comparison. It
means "at constant scope of
consolidation" or "at comparable
structure". You can say simply
"on a comparable basis" or "on a
like-for-like basis", but then you
leave some question as to what
adjustments have been made (e.g.
have exchange rates been held
constant as well?). Source
