External revenue is the revenue generated by the divisions from non-Group third parties. Internal revenue is revenue generated with other divisions. If comparable external market prices exist for services or products offered internally within the Group, these market prices or market-oriented prices are used as transfer prices (arm’s length principle). The transfer prices for services for which no external market exists are generally based on incremental costs.
The expenses for IT services provided in the IT service centres are allocated to the divisions by cause. The additional costs resulting from Deutsche Post AG’s universal postal service obligation (nationwide retail outlet network, delivery every working day), and from its obligation to assume the compensation structure as the legal successor to Deutsche Bundespost, are allocated to the MAIL Division.
Segment assets are composed of non-current assets (excluding non-current financial assets) and current assets (excluding income tax receivables, cash and cash equivalents and current financial instruments). Purchased goodwill is allocated to the divisions.
