In our Europe operating segment, staff levels decreased by 3.7 percent compared with December 31, 2014, due in particular to efficiency enhancement measures in several countries in our operating segment. Headcount in our Systems Solutions operating segment declined by 3.1 percent, largely due to staff restructuring measures in Germany and abroad. The number of employees in the Group Headquarters & Group Services segment was down 9.9 percent compared with the end of 2014, mainly due to the continued staff restructuring program including the place- ment of employees within the Group. FINANCIAL POSITION OF THE GROUP Total assets increased by EUR 5.9 billion compared with December 31, 2014, primarily influenced by the following factors: Intangible assets increased by EUR 4.5 billion to EUR 56.0 billion, mainly due to additions totaling EUR 6.2 billion. This includes among other things EUR 2.3 billion for the purchase of mobile licenses by T-Mobile US, in particular in the auction organized by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and completed in January 2015. The 100 MHz spectrum acquired in the frequency auction completed in Germany in June 2015 for EUR 1.8 billion also contributed to the increase. Exchange rate effects of EUR 2.1 billion, in particular from the translation of U.S. dollars into euros, also increased the carrying amount of intangible assets.
