  • Operational focus of strategy update announced in February is the right approach for continuing challenging market conditions; 2015 targets confirmed.
  • Restructuring activities being stepped up with full year charges expected to be in the order of €325 million with the benefits of these additional €120 million costs realized in 2014 and beyond
