In the short financial year 2013, METRO GROUP companies provided goods/services totalling €1 million to companies included in the group of related companies. This concerns primarily the granting of energy and lease rights.

The goods/services totalling €13 million that METRO GROUP companies received from related companies in the short financial year 2013 consisted of services, at an amount of €8 million, and real estate leases, at an amount of €5 million. The decline in services received is largely due to the termination of leasing agreements with related companies.

The basic principles of the remuneration system and the amount of Management and Supervisory Board compensation are listed in number 50 “Management Board and Supervisory Board”.

Business relations with related parties are based on contractual agreements providing for arm’s length prices. As in 2012, METRO GROUP had no business relations with related natural persons in the short financial year 2013.
