Revenue

Revenues improved slightly. The primarily price- and performance-related growth was mainly felt in business units of the integrated rail system. On a comparable basis (adjusted for special items as well as scope of consolidation and exchange rate changes), revenues increased slightly less strongly:

  • The special items in the year under review were insignificant. The decline was mainly due to lower revenue discounts in connection with ongoing procedures in infrastructure.
  • The effects of changes in the scope of consolidation mainly relate to DB Arriva (€ +74 million) and DB Cargo (€ +3 million).
  • The effects of exchange rate changes mainly impacted DB Schenker (€ +109 million) and DB Arriva (€ +14 million).
