Financial income - Extraordinary result

Financial income

The financial result decreased slightly from 15.0 million to 14.8 million euros, due to the following factors:

  • lower amortisation of investment grants, which were down from 15.3 to 13.5 million euros. Last year these amortisations were higher due to the full depreciation of investment grants for certain assets of the “Eilandje” area, with the net book value being written off as extraordinary charges;
  • higher income from cash at bank and in hand and current investments;
  • significantly lower debt charges. This effect was amplified by part of the write-downs on last year’s current investments being partially reversed.

Extraordinary result

The extraordinary results in 2010 are limited, and are mainly generated by certain capital gains and losses on the disposal of fixed assets.
