Net income adjusted for one-time special effects and effects from the measurement of derivative financial instruments within financial income and expenses is expected to have risen by 9 percent to Euro 160.6 million. Reported earnings per share are anticipated to have increased to Euro 2.04 (previous year: Euro 1.46). Earnings per share adjusted for one-time special effects and effects from the measurement of derivative financial instruments within financial income and expenses rose to an anticipated Euro 2.70 (previous year: Euro 2.50).
