On 23 February 2011, the Commission reported that Member States recovered a total of €530 million in State aid in 2010 which was granted to businesses before they were notified to the Commission and later found to be incompatible with EU State aid rules. This brings the total amount of aid recovered to €10.9 billion in the last 10 years. The pace of recovery is also increasing with 57% of the illegal aid either recovered or taken to the European Courts in less than two years. This compares with 48.3% in 2009 and 26.9% in 2007. However, the recovery concerns mostly new cases and there remains a backlog of old cases.
