As announced at the Annual General Meeting, we expect increased sales of > 10 % and a positive net result for the whole year 2017. The first half-year showed that we are on the right track. Production increases and inventory reduction will have a positive impact on the result.

The primary focus is on organic growth. We are also planning several projects to increase added value. Possible holdings or takeovers of other companies continue to be evaluated carefully.

We are not planning any further capital increase for now, but we have conditional and authorized capital at our disposal to take advantage of opportunities at short notice.
