We will continue our quality and capital expenditures initiative for the integrated rail system in Germany with large capital expenditures. We thus intend to improve our quality and customer satisfaction, drive digitalization (including IT security improvements) forward and increase our performance capability.

In the 2018 financial year, capital expenditures are again expected to be above the level of the year under review. Increased vehicle capital expenditures at DB Long-Distance (ICE 4 and IC 2), additional capital expenditures at DB Cargo as part of the rail freight transport initiative and higher capital expenditures for rail infrastructure will have an impact in this respect.
