4. Other operating income

Other operating income consisted of the following:

(€ thousand) 2012 2011
Revenues from services rendered to Group companies and other related parties 70,529 37,917
Changes in construction contract work in progress 527 1,621
Other revenues and income from Group companies and other related parties 4,215 4,288
Other revenues and income from third parties 2,103 1,505
Total other operating income 77,374 45,331

Revenues from services rendered to Group companies and other related parties relate almost entirely to services rendered by Fiat S.p.A. and management personnel to the principal companies in the Group (see Note 29).

Changes in construction contract work in progress relate to the current portion of fees payable to Fiat S.p.A. for activities carried out directly by the Company (management, coordination and organization) in relation to contracts with Treno Alta Velocità – TAV S.p.A. (now Rete Ferroviaria Italiana S.p.A.) that were still in progress at the end of the year (the Florence-Bologna and Novara-Milan lines – see Note 25).

Other revenues and income from Group companies and other related parties primarily consisted of cost charge-backs, rental income on real estate and directors’ fees received from Group companies in relation to Fiat S.p.A. employees serving as board members.

Other revenues and income from third parties relate to miscellaneous income, cost charge-backs and other prior year income.

The overall increase in other operating income over the previous year was primarily due to an increase in services rendered to Group companies, including the activities of the business units acquired at the end of 2011.
