|Revenue and income from banking transactions|
|Income from banking transactions||6,387||6,327|
As in the prior-year period, there was no revenue or income from banking transactions in fiscal year 2005 that was generated on the basis of barter transactions.
The increase in revenue is primarily due to organic growth in the logistics division as well as the revenue contribution from KarstadtQuelle logistics and from companies consolidated for the first time in the year under review, such as Koba, Blue Dart and Express Couriers (see note 3).
The further classification of revenue by corporate division (business segment) and the allocation of revenue and income from banking transactions to geographical regions is presented in the segment reporting.
The decrease in income from banking transactions is largely due to the fall in interest rates.
