KWK Strassfurth is a receivable to be paid in 2011 through the tariffs that cannot be recognised in German GAAP

Offshore costs to be recovered in the future from the tariffs cannot be recognised in German GAAP

Acquisition costs mainly relate to one-off consulting & advisory costs

(1) Shortage of volumes in 2006-2008 (€ 51m) are recorded as regulatory asset in IFRS equity in PPA; € 17,6m is booked In 2010 as net profit in German GAAP which has to be reversed in IFRS

PPA : Completed & Approved Purchase Price Allocation has been completed & final approval received •

IFRS 3 imposes within maximum 1 year a full analysis to allocate the paid goodwill or received badwill through a so-called Purchase Price Allocation (PPA)

PPA identifies all assets and liabilities as well as all contingent rights and obligations which all have to be recognised at acquisition date at “Fair Value”

PPA was executed at the level of Eurogrid GmbH (acquisition & finance vehicle in Germany) and signed off by the auditors of Eurogrid GmbH

PPA revealed a final one off non cash gain on bargain purchase of € 477,5 million Gain from a bargain purchase (in € million)
