This does not entail currency risks.

Based on the finan- cial assets and liabilities subject to interest rate risk on the balance sheet date, this shows the effect of a change on the Group’s equity. Interest rate risks arose on the balance sheet date only for credit borrowed the associated interest rate hedges. An increase in the market interest rate of 100 basis points would lead to an increase in equity of €17,444 thou- sand (previous year: €19,112 thousand). The majority of the loan liabilities have fixed interest terms. On the reporting date, loans totalling €215,500 thousand (previous year: €194,651 thousand) were hedged using derivative financial instruments. CAPITAL MANAGEMENT The Group’s capital management is designed to maintain a strong equity base with the aim of ensuring that its ability to repay its debts and its financial well-being are maintained in the future.
