In the year under review, we maintained our capital expenditure almost at the level of the previous year. Investments were made to support expansion, streamlining, and improvements to productivity, innovation, and measures to enhance the quality of our hardware, software, and services.
Capital Expenditures History.€m
In fiscal 2010/2011, we invested €63 million (2009/2010: €62 million) in total, primarily in the area of licenses and IT, specialist tools and production facilities, as well as in reworkable service parts. At €12 million (2009/2010: €15 million), expenditure on our Outsourcing (Glossary) business in Germany again formed one of the focal points of investment spending.
