(4) Investments in other affiliated companies

This item contains interests in other affiliated companies totaling €18 million (2011: €19 million). The reduction resulted from a valuation adjustment for the shares of Gevo Inc., Englewood, United States, due to the development of this company’s share price. This was partially offset by the addition of a strategic minority interest in BioAmber Inc., Minneapolis, United States.

As of December 31, 2012, all the other investments classified as available-for-sale financial assets – apart from the shares in Gevo Inc. – comprised unlisted equity instruments. Since the fair values of these instruments at the closing date could not be reliably determined, they were recognized at cost. There are currently no plans to dispose of these investments.
