Incidental items included in operating income


During 2010, we continued to restructure:

  • In Decorative Paints, mainly in Continental Europe and the US.
  • In Performance Coatings, we closed several sites in connection with the acquired powder coatings activities.
  • In Specialty Chemicals, we closed an incinerator in Rotterdam.

Apart from restructuring costs, we took a €32 million provision for environmental cleanup costs for a site in Sweden. In addition, we reported gains in connection with the acquired powder coatings activities in Q3 and the divestment of a captive insurance company in Q4.
