The "other" category

In the category “other” we report activities which are not allocated to a particular business area. Corporate costs are the unallocated costs of our head office and shared services center in the Netherlands (including our Central Research and Technology & Engineering activities). Also reported in the  “other” category are the results from our captive insurance companies, pension costs after the elimination of interest cost (reported as financing expenses), the cost of share-based compensation, the results of a small business and of treasury and legacy operations.
