Overall, the revenue development was in line with the expectation for 2018 as communicated by Conzzeta.  The fourth quarter reflects the base effect of the very strong previous year and an increasingly mixed performance in the segments and regions. Order intake for capital goods in the Sheet Metal Processing and Glass Processing segments was in China well below and in Europe and the US well above the prior year. The challenging business environment in the global automotive sector had a noticeably adverse effect in the Chemical Specialties segment. Conzzeta confirms the guidance of an EBIT margin (excluding one-off effects) for 2018 at the lower end of the target mid-term range of 8% to 10%. Conzzeta publishes its annual results for 2018 as well as its expectations for 2019 on March 20.
