In the prior year, income from the reversal of impairment losses on non-current assets of EUR 1.6 billion resulted from the partial reversal of impairment losses on spectrum licenses at T‑Mobile US, which increased their carrying amount. This item also included income of EUR 50 million from reversals of impairment losses in connection with the sale of the Romanian fixed-network business. Miscellaneous other operating income in the prior year had included a structuring fee received from SoftBank of EUR 0.3 billion, which T‑Mobile US received in return for support in the immediate sale of T‑Mobile US shares by SoftBank. Gains resulting in the reporting year from deconsolidations and from the sale of stakes accounted for using the equity method were attributable to the sale of the Dutch cell tower company T‑Mobile Infra to the independently managed investment company Digital Infrastructure Vehicle (DIV) and its subsequent contribution into Cellnex NL in connection with the combination of the cell tower business in the Netherlands. Miscellaneous other operating income includes a large number of individual items accounting for marginal amounts.

For further information on the reversals of impairment losses, please refer to Note 6 “Intangible assets.”

For further information on the combination of the cell tower business in the Netherlands and the set-up of an infrastructure fund, please refer to the section “Changes in the composition of the Group and other transactions” under “Summary of accounting policies.”
