In 2010, sales posted under “Other” totaled €157.1 million (2009: €180.8 million). This decline stemmed from the integration of Wacker Polymer Systems GmbH & Co. KG (WPS) into Wacker Chemie AG. Before the integration (July 1, 2009), internal sales relating to Wacker Chemie AG’s service activities with WPS had been reported under “Other.” In 2010, these sales no longer existed. “Other” EBITDA amounted to €-2.2 million in 2010 (2009: €-38.0 million). A non-recurring addition to pension provisions had impacted 2009’s EBITDA. Adjusted for this item, 2010’s EBITDA decreased, as sales were lower.
