  • Net sales after 9 months significantly higher – fewer new orders in 3rd quarter – start to 4th quarter indicates trend reversal in terms of order intake

    Net sales after 9 months significantly higher – fewer new orders in 3rd quarter – start to 4th quarter indicates trend reversal in terms of order intake

    After the strong surge in growth during the first term, net sales remained at a pleasing level in the third quarter as well at CHF 175 million. However, as predicted, the volume of business was not able to follow on seamlessly from the boom experienced during the first term. Order intake in particular (CHF 153 million) suffered during the summer months from the intensified drop in the solar market and the phase-out of large-scale projects in the North American communication market. Besides rather slack demand in the broad-based industrial core business due to the economic climate, state budget cuts led to lower volumes in the space and defence sub-market. The order situation in the rail market developed robustly overall and benefited from a revival of demand in China. In cumulative terms, net sales have seen double-digit growth compared with the previous year (+13%), whereas order intake reflects the slackening of demand (-13%).

  • HUBER+SUHNER achieves marked increase in net sales and income

    HUBER+SUHNER achieves marked increase in net sales and income

    HUBER+SUHNER has recorded a very positive first term of 2013 overall. All divisions have contributed to the strong growth in net sales (+23.2 % auf CHF 387.5 million). Compared with the weak previous year, the operating profit (CHF 29.4 million) improved considerably, too, and the EBIT margin (7.6 %) is within the target range again. This is particularly pleasing in view of the fact that, as the result of two insolvent customers in the solar field, high provisions were again recorded.
