EBIT margin from operating business improves further in third quarter of 2007

The KUKA Group generated an EBIT of EUR 20.8 million in the third quarter of 2007.

6 November 2007


Total EBIT for the first nine months of 2007 is therefore EUR 49.1 million, which corresponds to an EBIT margin of 5.3 percent. Included in the cumulative EBIT as of September 30, 2007 are net profits of EUR 5 million from the sale of properties. Net operating profit margin thus stands at 4.7 percent. Given these results, the Executive Board expects a higher EBIT margin from operating business for the 2007 financial year than the previously targeted 4.6 percent. Added to this will be profits from the aforementioned property sales.

The Executive Board also expects an improvement in net liquidity from the current target of approximately EUR 100 million, which was exceeded as of September 30, 2007 (EUR 106.7 million).

The Executive Board is therefore aiming to resume payment of a dividend for the 2007 financial year.
