The SYZYGY Group remains on a growth trajectory, with a further rise in sales of 13 per cent to EUR 47.2 million in the first nine months of 2016. Operating income (EBIT) likewise improved by 13 per cent to reach EUR 4.3 million, while the EBIT margin was 9.2 per cent, as in the prior year.
Financial income fell due to a lower level of liquid funds and the situation in the capital markets, contributing EUR 1.1 million to results. A high annualised return of 6.7 per cent was achieved.
Growth is mainly being driven by the Germany and US segments. Operating profit (EBIT) will rise in line with sales, which means earnings per share are expected to be approximately EUR 0.40.
