A total comparison was made between the personnel costs of the two years, taking into account extraordinary and non-recurring effects generated from the application of new regulations to the staff severance fund. For the latter item, the positive impact on the income statement for the previous financial year, as indicated in note 29, derived from the curtailment value (Euro 16,816 thousand), net of actuarial gains/losses (- Euro 11,538 thousand), for a net effect of Euro 5,278 thousand).

The increase in the “other costs” item resulted from the application of the same regulations, which required the booking of higher complementary pension scheme and INPS (Italian social security agency) fund costs.
