As already indicated, published data relative to the previous year, have been restated to make them uniform with current data. The item "Income taxes" is detailed below:

2012 2011 Change
In thousands of Euros
Current taxes 31,388 39,024 (7,636)
Deferred tax liabilities (5,601) (6,712) 1,111
Total 25,787 32,312 (6,525)
 

Taxes for 2012 were equal to €/000 25,787, and account for 38.0% of profit before tax. In 2011, taxes were equal to €/000 32,312, and accounted for 41.1% of profit before tax.
The major decrease compared to 2011 is due to lower profit before tax and to the recognition of deferred tax assets on temporary differences that will be cancelled in future years.
