SEGMENT REPORTING As a holding company, Deutsche EuroShop AG holds equity interests in shopping centers in the European Union. The investees are pure real-estate shelf companies without staff of their own. Operational management is contracted out to external service providers under agency agreements, with the result that the companies’ activities are exclusively restricted to asset management. The companies are op- erated individually. Due to the Company’s uniform business activities within a relatively homogeneous region (the European Union), and in accordance with IFRS 8.12, separate segment reporting is presented in the form of a breakdown by domestic and international results. 164 Deutsche EuroShop AG Annual Report 2015 CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS equivalents 70,69958,284
