Before looking at what caused revenue in this business
area to fall, we would first point out the positive perfor-
mance in 2012 on the cost side. The 1% decrease in
costs compared to 2011 is nearly 4 percentage points
lower than Spain’s headline inflation rate, showing the
flexibility of the company’s growth drivers when the
economic environment requires a more stringent ration-
alisation in the use of resources, without compromising
on the internationally top-ranking quality standards in all
the products and services supplied to the market.
