This was a substantial increase of 6.9 percentage points compared with the prior-year period, due in particular to ongoing strong customer additions. By contrast, the contribution by our Germany, Europe, and Systems Solutions operating segments and the Group Headquarters & Group Services segment decreased. The proportion of net revenue generated internationally continued to increase, rising from 59.5 percent in the prior-year period to 63.6 percent. EBITDA, ADJUSTED EBITDA Our EBITDA decreased year-on-year by EUR 0.8 billion to EUR 13.3 billion, mainly due to income of EUR 1.7 billion from the divestitures of the Scout24 group recognized as a special factor in the prior year, and to a spectrum transaction of EUR 0.4 billion concluded between T-Mobile US and Verizon Communications. Negative special factors amounting to EUR 1.5 billion were included in EBITDA in the first three quarters of 2015. They mainly comprised expenses incurred in connection with staff-related measures and non-staff related restructuring expenses of EUR 1.1 billion, which on a netted basis were EUR 0.3 billion higher than in the prior-year period. Furthermore, expenses of around EUR 0.4 billion from the decom- missioning of the MetroPCS CDMA network had a negative effect in the first nine months of 2015. In the prior-year period, these expenses amounted to EUR 0.1 billion. Excluding special factors, adjusted EBITDA increased year-on-year by EUR 1.6 billion to EUR 14.8 billion in the first nine months of 2015. Our United States operating segment in particular contributed to this trend, with a EUR 1.6 billion increase in its contribution to adjusted EBITDA. Total exchange rate effects of EUR 0.7 billion, especially from the trans- l­ation of U.S. dollars into euros, had a positive effect on the development of adjusted EBITDA. The agreement to settle an ongoing complaints procedure under anti-trust law resulted in income of EUR 175 million in the Group Headquarters & Group Services segment.
