Group Sales Jan. – Sep. 2011 – positive business trend for the year 2011

During the first nine months, Group turnover grew by 5.5 %. Product sales rose by 5.1 % and maintenance sales by 6.1 %. Work-in-progress increased 50.7 %.

Backlog stands at EUR 48 million and is more than 40 % higher than at the start of 2011. The increase in backlog is due to both a restraint in personnel recruitment (resulting in slight delays in order execution) and 8.2 % growth in order intake.

The fourth quarter is expected to continue the trend of the first three quarters. Full-year growth of turnover is anticipated to be 5-6 %.
