    Goodwill and intangible assets with an indefinite useful life resulting from acquisitions are analyzed for impairment on an annual basis. As of December 31, 2012, there was no need for an impairment of these assets. The following table shows the carrying amount of positions which are material for the Group. The table shows also the parameters used in the impairment analysis.

    The growth rates beyond the planning period are based on Euroconstruct estimations and on history-based internal assumptions about price and market share development. From today’s perspective, management believes that a possible and reasonable change of one of the crucial parameters (see  Note 3) used to calculate the recoverable amount would not lead to an impairment. The scenarios used to support this assumption are based specifically on decreases both in operating margins and the growth rate beyond the planning periods.
