The decrease in other operating income was due mainly to a reduction in miscellaneous other operating income, which had been heavily influenced in the previous year by a non-recurring effect (non-recurring income from central settlement due to the revised European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruling) as well as income from the disposal of non-current assets. By contrast, increases were recorded in income from advertising services, rental income and income from the reversal of provisions, income from other services and income from the reversal of provisions with the nature of a liability. Some of these items of income are closely related to the corresponding operating expenses. 

The decrease in income from the disposal of non-current assets was due primarily to a smaller amount of shares sold in DZ BANK AG Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftsbank, Frankfurt am Main.

The increase in income from advertising services is attributable primarily to increased advertising activities in radio and television, print media, outdoor advertising and the increased use of advertising material in the Retail Germany business segment. In addition, revenue increased due to the first-time consolidation of the Supermärkte Nord companies.

The increase in rental income is due primarily to the increase in rental income from REWE partner stores in the Retail Germany business segment. Positive effects here stemmed from the increase in the number of partner stores and the higher sales-based rents due to increased revenue. Income also increased due to the first-time inclusion of REWE Dortmund SE & Co. KG, Dortmund and the Supermärkte Nord companies. 

The increase in income from the reversal of provisions was due primarily to the Retail Germany business segment. The increase in income from other services is due mainly to the increase in income from the provision of services to the REWE partner stores and the inclusion of the Supermärkte Nord companies and REWE Dortmund SE & Co. KG, Dortmund.

The increase in income from the reversal of provisions with the nature of a liability relates among other things to the Retail International business segment.
