44. Related Party Disclosures

In accordance with IAS 24, parties related to the groups are non-consolidated subsidiaries, joint ventures and associates, including their subsidiaries, as well as other entities and persons defined as follows: Management Board and Supervisory Board of RZAG and RZF and entities controlled, jointly controlled or significantly influenced by these persons or close members of their families.

Other related parties include primarily companies belonging to Für Sie Handelsgenossenschaft eG Food – Non Food, Cologne, REWE DORTMUND Großhandel eG, Dortmund, and companies of Dohle Handelsgruppe Holding GmbH & Co. KG, Siegburg, which form part of the group of other related parties because they provide Supervisory Board members to RZF and RZAG. In addition to subsidiaries included in the Combined Financial Statements, RZF and RZAG have direct or indirect relations with a large number of non-consolidated companies and associates in the course of their normal business activities; these companies are considered related parties of RZF and RZAG. RZF and RZAG maintain significant business relations with the REWE partner companies, which are associates in which RZF has an indirect interest under the REWE partnership model. The supply of goods and services conducted as part of normal business activities primarily comprises the delivery of goods, leasing and services.

The volume of goods and services provided to joint ventures relates mainly to goods deliveries amounting to 189.5 million euros (previous year: 178.1 million euros).

Goods and services supplied to associates are attributable mainly to deliveries of goods amounting to 6,131.0 million euros (previous year: 5,716.7 million euros) and to leases and services amounting to 578.3 million euros (previous year: 538.4 million euros) provided to the REWE partner companies.

The goods and services provided to other related parties relates mainly to goods deliveries amounting to 403.4 million euros (previous year: 425.5 million euros). The remaining amount for goods and services is due almost exclusively to leasing services and services provided to companies taking part in central settlement.

The goods and services received from associates primarily comprise expenses for services used and rental expenses. The goods and services received from other related parties are attributable almost entirely to expenses from leasing services.

The loans mainly comprise shareholder loans and start-up loans to REWE partner companies (see note 26 "Other Financial Assets").

This deviation resulted from the contribution during the financial year of equity interests in REWE DORTMUND Großhandel eG, Dortmund, which is therefore no longer classified as an other related party.
