Other financial commitments
Capital expenditures in relation to which DB Group has entered into contractual obligations as of the balance sheet date, but for which no consideration has yet been received, are broken down as follows:
COMMITTED CAPITAL EXPENDITURES FOR
Property, plant and equipment
Acquisition of financial assets
The slight increase in the purchase commitment in property, plant and equipment was particularly due to the planned capital expenditure projects relating to own construction services and the procurement of new vehicles. In the case of some supply arrangements, there are independent admissions of guilt with regard to fulfilling the purchase commitment; these are opposed by claims of the same amount, backed by bank guarantees and insurance policies with very good ratings. The purchase commitment for the acquisition of property, plant and equipment also contains future obligations for vehicles in connection with transport contracts to be recognized in accordance with IFRIC 12.
The acquisition of financial assets related to outstanding contributions for EUROFIMA European Company for the Financing of Railroad Rolling Stock, Basel/Switzerland which have not been called in.
