Earnings position

Following the signing of the agreement to sell the Galeria Kaufhof group, this sales line has no longer been reported as a separate segment and as part of the continuing operations of METRO GROUP since the third quarter of 2014/15, but as a discontinued operation. Accordingly, METRO GROUP’s financials for financial year 2014/15 have been recalculated to account for the disposal of Galeria Kaufhof and the previous year’s figures have been adjusted (with the exception of the balance sheet and the respective notes to the balance sheet).
