Capital expenditure (capex) was EUR 199.8 million against EUR 164.6 million a year ago.

The company anticipated capital expenditure for 2015 is around EUR 1.3 billion. Expenditure connected with the Legacy Project accounts for most of this figure. A large amount of capital expenditure is still intended for the implementation of the package of measures for water protection in the Hesse-Thuringia potash district.
