The subject of the current study is the analysis of the balance sheet and P&L key figures of the major family businesses for the period 2008 to 2010. The study is based on the database created in autumn 2011 within the framework of the second update of key figures. Besides the development of the balance sheet and P&L data during and after the financial and economic crisis, the development of the turnover and employment figures of the major family businesses is also analysed. As balance sheet and P&L data is already available for around one quarter of the major family businesses for 2011, a solid estimate of the key figures examined is made for the 2011 financial year.
