Discontinued operations

Following the signing of the agreement to sell the department store business including the corresponding real estate assets of the Galeria Kaufhof group, this sales line is no longer reported as a separate segment and as part of the continuing operations of METRO GROUP as of the third quarter 2014/15, but as a discontinued operation. Accordingly, METRO GROUP’s data 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).
