Market Roundup
2019 started well for the Koenig & Bauer group, posting a double-digit increase in order intake in the first quarter year-over year to €276.4m. This strong growth, which exceeded the industry average, was underpinned by significantly more orders for services and for folding carton, direct glass and security printing presses. At €230.7m, revenue exceeded the previous year’s figure by 6.2%. EBIT was still slightly in negative territory due to the low revenue level, coming to –€2.8m despite high market-entry and growth-related expenses, and was thus not far off the previous year’s figure of –€1.9m. At –€4.9m, group net earnings in the first quarter of 2019 translate into earnings per share of –€0.30.
