Financial expense

Total financial expenses declined by CHF 1.9 million to CHF 17.2 million (previous year CHF 19.1 million). The decrease in mortgage loans as a result of the sale of investment properties had a positive impact.

Swaps disqualified from hedge accounting

In addition the disqualification of four swaps as a result of investment property disposals led to a charge of CHF 4.1 million through the income statement (previous year CHF 3.8 million).

Financial income

The Züblin Group recorded financial income of CHF 0.3 million (previous year CHF 0.9 million). The decline was primarily due to the absence of one-off positive currency effects earned in the same period last year.
