IFRS 16 NFP stood at € -235.7 million and includes the IFRS 16 impact of € -62.3 million; without D Scuola, the figure would come to € -100.3 million, improving by approximately € 11 million versus 30 September 2021: the impact, in terms of cash out, of the acquisitions completed by the Group is, in fact, offset by the lower financial debt accounted for under IFRS 16, due mainly to the renegotiation of the terms of the lease contract for the Group’s Segrate HQ.
