At the end of 2022, net liquidity amounted to CHF 140.1 million (previous year: CHF 302.8 million). Compared with the previous year, this equates to a 54 per cent decline. The main driver was the significant increase in lease liabilities by a total of CHF 109.0 million. The increase is solely due to the additional leasing of analogue and digital advertising spaces at Neo Advertising. Furthermore, the investment of time deposits (CHF 70.0 million) and the resumption of dividend payments (CHF 78.4 million) had a reducing effect. With net liquidity being positive, no debt factor can be calculated.
