Notes on the Reporting

There were no particular events or transactions during the period under review either in HHLA’s operating environment or within the Group that had a significant impact on its earnings position and financial position. Both the key economic indicators and HHLA’s actual performance in the first six months of 2017 are above the projections made in the 2016 Annual Report – due in particular to the performance of the Container segment in the second quarter of 2017. See results of operations, net assets and financial position

There is normally no long-term order backlog for handling and transport services, and thus no use is made of this particular reporting figure.
