At the end of the year under review, equity was €1,179 million (2019: €3,781 million). The net loss of €2,581 million has been recognised in the general reserves and explains the drop in equity, in particular. The return on equity was 37% negative in 2020 (2019: 5.6% positive). Solvency, at 14%, was much lower than in the previous year (2019: 40%). The decrease in total assets (€8,155 million at year-end 2020, compared with €9,448 million at year-end 2019) is due in particular to the recognition of the impairment of assets in the result.
