Net liquidity including discontinued operations and taking into account lease liabilities amounted to EUR 499.8 million as of December 31, 2021, compared to EUR 245.3 million at the end of the previous year.
This marked increase in liquidity was largely attributable to the significantly improved earnings and the sharp reduction in net working capital. The largest cash outflows are attributable to the dividends paid (EUR 153.4 million), repayment of the European Investment Bank loan (EUR 150.0 million), investments in property, plant and equipment and intangible assets (EUR 129.9 million) and the acquisition of treasury shares under the share buyback program (EUR 93.8 million).
