The double-digit growth in all segments remained broad-based on a regional level during the first nine months. Order intake for capital goods in the Sheet Metal Processing and Glass Processing segments most recently reflected the base effect of the very strong previous year and an increasingly mixed performance in the regions. Customers in China were more cautious due to heightened political and macroeconomic uncertainties, while order intake in the Americas continued to grow. Despite the overall more demanding operating environment, Conzzeta confirms the expectations for 2018 communicated on August 10, with revenue growth of around 20% and an EBIT margin (excluding one-off effects) at the lower end of the target mid-term range of 8% to 10%.
