German term or phrase: (Vj. TEUR 2.073).
Am I right in thinking the Vj. stands for Vierteljahr - Quarter in English?

prior/previous year
Explanation:
I am fairly sure that this is a prior-year comparison rather than 'Vj.' standing for 'Vierteljahr', which would be highly unusual because the most commonly used German equivalent of 'quarter' is 'Quartal'. Note that TEUR are thousand euros, hence TEUR 2.073 = €2.073 million).
