Given the negative earnings performance in the reporting period, at EUR 13.8 million the corporate income tax is positive (previous year: EUR –187.1 million). This results in a profit after tax for the business year 2019/20 of EUR –216.5 million, compared with EUR 458.6 million in the previous year.
