For the 3rd quarter, order intake in the Sheet Metal Processing segment was at CHF 242.9 million, 0.4% above the same period of the previous year. The lower order volume in America was offset by greater activity in Europe and Asia. Net revenue from continuing operations was in all regions and segments below previous year’s quarter. The decrease mainly reflects the again more challenging market environment with the general economic slowdown and accentuated adverse exchange rate fluctuations. For the full year 2019 Conzzeta continues to expect net revenue from continuing operations slightly below the previous year, with a broader-based operating result across all segments and a slightly improved EBIT margin.
