The main portion of ASML’s revenue is derived from contractual arrangements with its customers that have multiple deliverables, which mainly include the sale of our systems, installation and training services and prepaid extended and enhanced (optic) warranty contracts. For each of the specified deliverables ASML determines the selling price by using either vendor specific objective evidence (‘VSOE’), third party evidence (‘TPE’) or by best estimate of the selling price (‘BESP’). When the Company is unable to establish relative selling price using VSOE or TPE, the Company uses BESP in its allocation of arrangement consideration. The total arrangement consideration is allocated at inception of the arrangement to all deliverables on the basis of their relative selling price. The revenue relating to the undelivered elements of the arrangements is deferred at their relative selling prices until delivery of these elements. Revenue from installation and training services is recognized when the services are completed. Revenue from prepaid extended and enhanced (optic) warranty contracts is recognized over the term of the contract.Foreign currency risk management
