Gains from the disposal of fixed assets and gains from the reversal of impairment losses primarily include income in the amount of €197 million from the disposal of real estate that will be used fully or for the most part by third parties in the future (2013/14: €21 ). This includes income of €12 million from the sale of real estate assets that METRO GROUP plans to continue to use under tenancy agreements (2013/14: €107 million). In addition, this item primarily includes gains from the reversal of impairment losses in the amount of €22 million (2013/14: €11 million).

Services rendered to suppliers essentially relate to the segments METRO Cash & Carry at €157 million (2013/14: €174 million), Media-Saturn at €20 million (2013/14: €14 million) and Real at €5 million (2013/14: €28 million). The decline is essentially due to the sale of Real’s Eastern European business in Poland (€23 million) and the sale of the wholesale business in Greece (€20 million).

Income from deconsolidation includes income from the sale of the Greek wholesale business at €9 million (2013/14: €44 million, essentially from the sale of Real’s operations in Poland).

Miscellaneous other operating income particularly includes income from compensation in the amount of €24 million (2013/14: €23 million). Among others, this item also includes income from the derecognition of lapsed liabilities of €9 million (2013/14: €11 million), public-sector subsidies of €9 million (2013/14: €9 million) and income from other commissions of €5 million (2013/14: €4 million).
