Cash flows

Operating activities in Q3 2011 resulted in a cash inflow of €409 million (2010: €378 million). The change is due to a net effect of:

  • Lower profit from continuing operations
  • Lower cash flows from operating working capital
  • Lower payments related to provisions
  • Lower payments for tax and interest.

Compared to 2010, year-to-date changes in working capital are mainly due to:

  • A higher autonomous increase in operating working capital
  • Fair value changes and cash settlements for foreign currency hedging activities.
