Additional text:
In terms of content, the annual financial statements were influenced by a series of one-off effects. Extraordinary income from the sale of an investment was offset by losses in the Radiation Therapy segment and an increase in risk provisioning. With regard to sales and income, the Group also benefited from the lower external value of the euro. The detailed figures will be published on March 23, 2016.

As part of the reorganization of the Radiation Therapy segment, plans are in place to transfer Dr. Edgar Löffler’s position as Executive Director on the Board of Directors of Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG s.a. to Dr. Harald Hasselmann at mid-year. Dr. Löffler will remain a member of the Executive Board of Eckert & Ziegler AG, where he will continue to be responsible for the Radiation Therapy segment.
