The acceleration in customer activity compared to the pandemic-hit first half of the year confirmed the expectation communicated with the publication of the half-year results in August. In the third quarter, the Group’s net revenue was 2.7% below the previous year in organic terms, with Mammut (Outdoor segment) recording slight growth. The acceleration was evident in all regions, but was particularly pronounced in China, where order intake from Bystronic (Sheet Metal Processing segment) and revenue from FoamPartner (Chemical Specialties segment) exceeded the previous year’s levels.

The implementation of the Group’s announced strategic focus is proceeding according to plan. The date for the Capital Markets Day, where the strategy for the Bystronic core business will be presented, has been set as November 10. For the 2020 financial year, Conzzeta is still expecting an operating result (including the divestment gain on the sale of Schmid Rhyner) in the mid-double-digit CHF million range, with substantially lower net revenue compared to the previous year.
