Liquidity analysis: liquidity further increased The Group’s operating cash flow of €135.0 million (2014: €133.3 mil- lion) comprises the amount generated by the Group for sharehold- ers through the leasing of shopping center space after deduction of all costs. It primarily serves to finance the dividends of Deutsche EuroShop AG and payments to third-party shareholders. Cash flow from operating activities came to €133.8 million (2014: €132.8 million) and contains, in addition to operating cash flow, changes in receivables and other assets as well as in other liabilities and pro- visions. The reduction in current provisions was attributable mainly to the payment of invoices outstanding beyond the reporting date for maintenance and restructuring work carried out in the previous year. Cash flow from financing activities fell from €-139.8  million to €-109.4  million. Cash outflows from financial liabilities totalling €24.2 million resulted from the repayment of credit liabilities. Divi- dends paid to shareholders totalled €70.1 million. Dividend payments to third-party shareholders came to €15.1 million. Cash and cash equivalents rose by €12.4 million in the year under review to €70.7 million (2014: €58.3 million).
