Adjusted EBIT of Industrial Activities of €134 million (€82 million in Q1 2022), with a 4.0% margin (up 130 bps compared to Q1 2022): positive price realisation, higher volumes and better mix more than offset higher raw material and energy costs.

Free cash flow of Industrial Activities negative for €593 million (€427 million lower compared to Q1 2022) primarily due to the impact on inventory level deriving from high demand, as well as component shortage and supply chain issues.
