The global economy is still marked by uncertainties. We expect market conditions for machine tools to remain difficult. The global market for machine tools is expected to decrease in 2016. The German Machine Tool Builders´ Association (VDW) and the British economic research institute Oxford Economics now expect in their latest forecast (status: October 2016) a decline of global consumption by 1.7% to € 67.4 billion (forecast in April: +1.9%).

However, for the year as a whole, we are still expecting a slight improvement in order intake compared to last year. We are planning sales revenues of around € 2.25 billion. EBT shall amount to around € 95 million. The earnings trend is marked by one-time effects due to the realignment measures already initiated and planned. Regardless of business performance, the domination and profit transfer agreement ensures the payment of a “guaranteed dividend” of € 1.17. In addition, we are expecting a slight positive free cash flow.

The further growing together to form a globally integrated machine tool company enables us to consolidate our competitive position in global markets. As a ‘Global One Company’, we are focusing on our core business in the machine tool and service segments. As part of this strategy, we reorganise our global sales and service. We will specifically develop our product portfolio and optimise our production capacities. “Global One” stands for integration, innovation and quality.
