The improvement regarding currency management, is mainly due to the fact that the negative result of the previous year has been significantly influenced by the first application of the official SICAD II exchange rate, for the purpose of converting the Group’s net assets in the Venezuelan currency (the so called Bolivar Fuerte or VEF), which brought overall costs for € 97 million.
