Current assets fell by €2.9 billion to €11.6 billion. This decline is largely due to the €−2 billion decrease in the item cash and cash equivalents (30/9/2016: €2.4 billion; 30/9/2015: €4.4 billion), which primarily results from the fact that the previous year’s figure includes cash inflows from the sale of the Galeria Kaufhof group that were essentially used to reduce financial liabilities. Other financial and non-financial assets decreased by €0.7 billion to €2.7 billion (30/9/2015: €3.4 billion). This decline was essentially due to the decline in other financial assets, which primarily resulted from lower receivables from other financial transactions (30/9/2016: €100 million; 30/9/2015: €479 million) and lower receivables from METRO Unterstützungskasse e. V. (30/9/2016: €6 million; 30/9/2015: €221 million).
