Covestro successfully concluded the sale of its European polycarbonate sheets business to the Munich-based Serafin group on January 2, 2020. Due to impairment losses on the assets of the divested business in the third quarter of 2019 (see note 5.2 “Acquisitions and divestments”), the effect of the sale on earnings was immaterial.
