Introduction of a new performance metric
- We are introducing EBIT after asset charge as a new primary performance metric to focus all divisions on sustained value growth. From 1 January 2008, management incentives will also be tied to this metric. In this way, we aim to improve cash generation.
- We also plan for a €700 million reduction in net working capital by the end of 2009.
- Disposals of real estate and other assets are planned over the next 24 months to free up at least €1 billion.
