The obtainable amount of a CGU is determined on the basis of value-in-use calculations and surplus equity. These calculations are based on the data at 31 December 2009 and on cash flow projections based on financial budgets approved by management covering a five-year period. Cash flows beyond the five-year period are extrapolated using an average estimated growth rate.

Management has determined the revenues and expenditures based on developments in the past and expectations regarding future developments as well as strategic development. The average growth rate is in accord with forecasts made by the industry. The discount rate, which is applied to the cash flow projections, is an equity cost rate and reflects the specific risks of the segment concerned. An analysis of the value retention of goodwill revealed that no impairment of value has occured.

For analysis purposes, the Group makes estimates and assumptions regarding future developments. The extrapolated figures obtained in this manner only very rarely correspond to actual subsequent events and conditions. The following overview provides information about significant risks within the next financial year in the form of an adjustment of book values:

If subsequently the cash flow before tax were to be higher or the discount interest rate lower than estimated by management, an already effected, unplanned write-off (value impairment) of goodwill cannot be reversed.

Other intangible assets

Customer relationships and brand values are reported as assets under other intangible assets. Theseare amortised over a period of 10 to 15 years on a straight-line basis. Estimated aggregated amortisation on intangible assets amounts to:
