Division revenues increased 4.1% to Euro 231.0 million, compared to Euro 221.8 million in 2014. The
major growth across various markets - in particular Spain, Turkey, China and Korea - was however
partially offset by the weakness in Russia, Brazil and the U.A.E. and the depreciation of a number of local
currencies, such as the Turkish Lira and the Brazilian Real, which respectively impacted the significant
real growth of the Turkish subsidiary and held back the development of sales by the Brazilian subsidiary.
