This corresponds to an equity ratio of roughly 10.1 percent, given total assets in the amount of EUR 52.6 million. Inconsideration of minority interests in the result of the group, the net income attributable to shareholders of CFC amounts to KEUR -596. This corresponds to a loss per share of EUR 0.07.
