The preliminary order intake for the first quarter 2017 amounts to approximately EUR 45 million (previous year: EUR 33.1 million), which is at the upper end of the bandwidth given on March 21, 2017.

For the current fiscal year, the Company guided sales to be in the range of EUR 160 million - EUR 170 million and an EBIT (earnings before interest and income taxes) to be in the range of EUR 9 million - EUR 13 million.
