In May 2016, the group granted 0.8 million stock options under the stock option plan of which 217,500 stock options were granted to Management Board members. The purpose of the share-based compensation is to attract and retain management and employees and align the interests of management and eligible employees with those of shareholders, by providing additional incentives to improve the group's performance on a long-term basis.

In addition to the stock option grant, the group also granted new phantom shares to certain groups of employees. The phantom share plan is classified as a cash-settled plan. The plan has a three-year service period as the only vesting condition.

For further information on our share-based compensation, reference is made to note 7 and note 33 in our 2015 Annual Report.

8. Related party transactions

Refer to note 7 for stock options granted to the members of the Management Board during H1 '16.

In the normal course of business, the group receives map development and support services from its associate Cyient Ltd. Such transactions take place at the normal market conditions and the total payments made for these services in H1 '16 amounted to €7.8 million (H1 '15: €9.2 million).

Transactions and balances with other associates are not material and hence are not disclosed.

9. Seasonality

In the 12 months ended June 2016, the group had revenue of €1,019 million compared with revenue of €963 million for the 12 months period ending June 2015.

The group’s sales within the Consumer segment are traditionally higher in the second half of the year due to the holiday sales in the fourth quarter and traditionally low sales in the first quarter. This trend has become less apparent in recent years. In the 12 months ended 30 June 2016, Consumer had revenue of €611 million compared with €612 million in the same period ended 30 June 2015.

Other operating segments’ revenue is generally not materially affected by seasonality.

Besides the normal market seasonality, the group revenue can also be affected by new product launches.

In the first half of 2016, there were no material changes to the group’s commitments and contingent liabilities from those disclosed in note 32 of our 2015 Annual Report.

11. Fair value and fair value estimation
