05 Intangible assets

Intangible assets include industrial property rights and similar rights and assets. In the reporting year, the goodwill from the acquisition of Wacker Biotech GmbH, which was written down to zero in the previous year, was shown as a disposal originally amounting to €7.7 million. This means, that as of December 31, 2009, goodwill under intangible assets is included neither under cost nor under amortization.

In the previous year, intangible assets amounting to €8.1 million were identified within the purchase price allocation as part of the extension of the scope of consolidation through the acquisition of the shares in the APP companies. These consist primarily of customer lists.
