Annual Report 2019

Performance Indicators

Our management system has a modular structure and makes a distinction between performance indicators at Group level (most meaningful performance indicators within the meaning of DRS 20) and those at segment level.

We make a distinction between financial and non-financial performance indicators.

We have an integrated Group-wide planning and controlling system in place that is based on central performance indicators. Based on the medium-term plans derived from our strategy, which are subject to an annual review and are updated during the year in the event of significant transactions, we prepare a budget for all areas of the Group. In the course of the fiscal year, current business developments are compared with these targets and the current forecasts on a regular basis for all key figures that are relevant to control. The business is then steered accordingly in a targeted manner, with any necessary countermeasures being initiated and tracked.

At Group level, Group FFO, the Adjusted EBITDA Total, the Adjusted NAV per share and the CSI are our most meaningful financial performance indicators.
