19. Share of Results Attributable to Non-Controlling Interests

Profits due to non-controlling interests in the amount of € 29,165 thousand (previous year: € 31,646 thousand) primarily relate to non-controlling interests in CTA. Their share of earnings decreased year-on-year due to the CTA Group’s lower actual results. This was partially offset by interest income from the measurement of the settlement obligation attributable to the co-partner (previous year: interest expense), which increased the share of earnings (previous year: reduced).
