The funded status of the pension plans at the end of Q2 2013 was a deficit of €0.4 billion (year-end 2012: €1.1 billion as reported, €0.9 billion on restated basis). The movement compared to year-end 2012 is primarily due to:

  • Changes in accounting standard IAS 19 (effective January 1, 2013) by €183 million
  • Top-up payments of €294 million into certain pension plans
  • Higher discount rates in all key countries

Offset by:

  • Higher inflation
  • Lower asset returns.
