In the course of its operations, the LANXESS Group sources materials, inventories and services from a large number of business partners worldwide. These include companies in which LANXESS AG holds a direct or indirect interest. Transactions with these companies are carried out on an arm’s-length basis.

Transactions in the first quarter of 2013 with associated companies accounted for in the consolidated financial statements using the equity method, or subsidiaries of such companies, mainly comprised the purchase of site services in the fields of utilities, infrastructure and logistics totaling €116 million (Q1 2012: €120 million). Trade payables of €47 million and trade receivables of €4 million existed as of March 31, 2013 as a result of these transactions (December 31, 2012: €38 million and €4 million). Further, a provision in the amount of €29 million was recognized as of March 31, 2013 (December 31, 2012: €29 million) for the claim by Currenta GmbH & Co. OHG, Leverkusen, Germany, for the offsetting of a loss for 2012. Existing payment obligations to these companies under operating leases or under purchase agreements relating to planned or ongoing capital expenditure projects in the area of property, plant and equipment are immaterial.

No material business transactions were undertaken with other associated companies or individuals. As in the previous year, no loans were granted to members of the Board of Management or the Supervisory Board in the first three months of 2013.
