First half-year sales 2013 – subdued sales growth
The market environment remains challenging in Europe, but is improving in the U.S.
Sales of products declined by 2.2 % in the first half-year whereas sales of maintenance and service grew by 9.0 %. This resulted in total sales growth of 2.4 % despite a slightly negative impact from the weakening of the Swiss Franc.
Compared to 12 months ago, the order book is of a similar size after it grew by 18.7 % during the first-half of 2013.
The growth of the operating result of the first six-months is expected to be higher than sales growth.
