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. Order intake increased strongly in the US in particular. Conzzeta will publish its half-year results on August 10, 2018, providing an updated outlook for the 2018 financial year where necessary.
