Overview

  • Organic sales growth (+5.7 %) driven by all business sectors
  • EBITDA pre declines organically (-2.0%), adversely impacted by the absence of one-time effects
  • Business in Asia drives Group organic growth
  • Group confirms organic forecast for sales and earnings and expects a more favorable exchange rate development

Our focus on innovation-driven businesses is paying off. We achieved organic sales growth in all three of our business sectors. Regionally, Asia is a particularly strong growth market. For the full year, we continue to assume that the Group will achieve growth for its key figures: sales, EBITDA pre and EPS pre.”
