8. PROFIT/LOSS ON EQUITY-ACCOUNTED INVESTMENTS AND OTHER INVESTMENT INCOME
The expenses in respect of equity-accounted investments in 2012 largely consisted of DEUTZ AG's share in the losses made by the joint ventures DEUTZ (Dalian) Engine Co., Ltd. in Dalian, China and WEIFANG WEICHAI-DEUTZ DIESEL ENGINE CO., LTD. in Weifang, China which were the result of a slowdown in economic growth in China. The income relating to equity-accounted investments was mainly attributable to our shareholding in D.D. Power Holdings, South Africa.
Other net investment income included profits transferred by DEUTZ Sicherheit GmbH, Cologne, and DEUTZ Versicherungsvermittlung GmbH, Cologne.
