In the item general administrative expenses, especially personnel expenses increased compared with the previous year. This is due to an increase in restructuring expenses and wages and salaries. The opposite effect was produced by variable remuneration.

An increase in consulting expenses in the cost of material was largely offset by a decline in other taxes and the dissolution of various provisions.
