Earnings per share

Earnings per share for the first quarters of 2012 and 2013 were calculated on the basis of the number of shares outstanding as of end of the respective reporting periods. They are derived solely from continuing operations. Since there are currently no equity instruments in issue that could dilute earnings per share, basic and diluted earnings per share are identical. For more information about equity instruments that could dilute earnings per share in the future, readers are referred to the notes to the consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2012.

The change in accounting had a €1 million negative effect on income after income taxes and net income for the first quarter of 2013. The impact on earnings per share was €0.01.
