Investments measured using the equity method are reported at fair value. Any write-ups in the year under review are recognised in net profit or loss for the period.

Trade receivables, other assets and cash and cash equivalents, with the exception of interest rate swaps - which are recognised at present value – have predominantly short residual terms. The carrying amounts thus correspond to the fair value. The change in the present value of the long-term interest rate swap recognised was € 162 thousand (previous year: € 161 thousand).

Bank loans and overdrafts have long-term durations and are recognised at amortised cost. The fair value for Group loans is given in the notes under item 11 “Bank loans and overdrafts”. In total, interest expense of € 65,761 thousand (previous year: € 54,075 thousand) is included in net finance costs.

Trade payables and other liabilities, with the exception of interest rate swaps – which are recognised at present value – usually have short residual terms. The carrying amounts thus correspond to the fair value.

When measuring interest rate swaps, the interest and market price parameters applicable on the reporting date are applied.

Interest from financial instruments is reported in net finance costs. The profit/loss share of third-party shareholders of € 15,730 thousand (previous year: € 7,948 thousand) is also included in net finance costs.

Impairment charges on receivables are recognised in property operating costs.
