Bietigheim-Bissingen, June 8, 2011 – Due to the continuing strong demand in its markets Dürr increases its outlook for sales and earnings in the fiscal year 2011. Dürr expects an increase in sales of 30% to approximately € 1.65 billion for 2011. Previously a plus of at least 15% compared to 2010 was expected. The target for the EBIT margin is unchanged at 3.5 to 4%. Main factor for the positive business development is the strong demand by the automobile industry, which still expands and modernizes its production capacities.
Dürr will publish the figures for the second quarter and the first half of 2011 on August 4, 2011.
