26. Trade receivables

Of total trade receivables of €568 million (previous year: €551 million) €1 million (previous year: €0 million) is due in over 1 year.

Among other things, the increase in trade receivables is due to an altered year-end constellation of days and a 0 percent financing campaign, which the Media-Saturn sales line conducted in Switzerland during the year.

The reclassification of €13 million in trade receivables to “assets held for sale” in connection with the divestment of Real’s Eastern European business as well as improved receivables management partly offset this increase.
