Staff-related provisions mainly consist of provisions for profit-sharing, bonuses and other gratuities, holiday and overtime accounts, partial early retirement, early retirement and severance pay obligations. The latter provision covers the Group’s forecast obligations under existing collective early retirement agreements as part of a redundancy settlement in connection with changes to the sugar market regime that will come into effect in subsequent years. This item also includes obligations under other individual agreements.

Provisions for litigation risks and risk provisions were mainly recognised for risks from various ongoing legal disputes and miscellaneous legal risks.

Miscellaneous other provisions relate partly to recultivation obligations. The provision made for this includes the forecast expenses for the demolition of buildings and recultivation of land used for operations as well as demolition obligations at former production sites. Miscellaneous other provisions were also made for bonuses and commissions, onerous contracts, outstanding invoices and other anticipated expenses.
