CURRENT ASSETS INCREASED AS AT BALANCE SHEET DATE As at the end of the year, current assets amounted to €183.7 million, an increase of €98.4 million compared to the previous year (2011: €85.3 million). This was exclusively the result of the higher level of cash and cash equivalents at the reporting date. Trade receivables of €4.7 million, on the other hand, fell €0.9 million short of the previ- ous year (€5.6 million). Other assets also declined by €8.2 million, from €15.3 million to €7.1 million. Cash and cash equivalents amounted to €167.5 million on the report- ing date, €103.1 higher than at the end of the previous year (€ 64.4 million). There was also a time deposit as at the balance sheet date, which was recognised as other financial investment.

Residual work on expansion measures at our centers in Dresden, Sulzbach and Wildau also led to investments totalling €7.0 mil- lion. Costs of investments in portfolio properties amounted to €5.6 million. The revaluation of our property portfolio resulted in value increases amounting to €48.2 million and value decreases totalling €17.1 million. Compared with the previous year, other non-current assets increased by a net €1.9 million as a result of remeasurements, due in particu- lar to the higher valuation of the stake in the Galeria Dominikan- ska in Wroclaw. TEMPORARY INCREASE IN CURRENT LIABILITIES Current liabilities rose by €80.9 million, from €167.0 million to €247.9 million, due in particular to the increase in short-term bank loans and liabilities (+ €58.0 million) as well as tax liabilities (+ €18.6 million). Other current liabilities rose in net terms by €4.3 million, primarily due to an increase in other provisions. NON-CURRENT LIABILITIES UP DUE TO FINANCING Non-current liabilities rose by €113.9 million, from €1,865.1 mil- lion to €1,979.0 million. This is primarily attributable to the issue of the convertible bond (€91.9 million) Other non-current bank loans and overdrafts climbed €35.2 million to €1.371.2 million. Non- current deferred tax liabilities, on the other hand, fell by €30.1 mil- lion to €180.5 million. At €284.2 million, third-party interests in the equity of the property companies exceeded that of the previous year by €4.1 million. Other liabilities increased by €12.8 million to €51.2 million (2011: €38.5 million), largely due to the valuation of interest rate swaps. EQUITY At €1,321.9 million, Group equity was up €128.9 million on the previous year (€1,193.0 million). The changes that arose during the year under review were attribut- able to, among other things, the capital increase that led to net issue proceeds in the amount of €66.7 million. In addition, the conver- sion rights of the convertible bond issued in November were valued at €7.1 million and recognised directly in equity. The earnings recog- nised directly in equity resulted in a reduction in equity of €10.6 mil- lion. Other changes led to an increase in equity of €65.7 million. This was in particular related to the difference between the consoli- dated profit of €122.5 million and the dividend in the amount of €56.8 million paid out in June 2012. { 131 } DES ANNUAL REPORT 2012 GROUP MANAGEMENT REPORT Results of operations, financial position and net assets
