With significant double-digit revenue growth in all segments, the Group’s strong performance in the second half of 2017 continued into the first quarter of 2018 in a market environment that remained generally favorable. Net revenue growth was broad-based on a regional level, with an EBIT margin of more than 8%. A significant change in the scope of consolidation is the acquisition of Otto Bock Kunststoff in the Chemical Specialties segment at the start of September 2017.
