Capital Expenditure.

As in the previous year, investments totaled €56 million in fiscal 2015/2016. These were directed primarily at IT equipment, software and licenses, specialist tools, and reworkable service parts. Within the IT field, our operations in Germany again formed one of the focal points of investment spending.

At €43 million (2014/15: €47 million), the majority of investments made over the course of fiscal 2015/2016 were attributable to the Banking segment. Additionally, a further €13 million (2014/15: €9 million) was invested in the Retail segment during the period under review.
