Dürr expects to reach sales of € 3.4 to 3.6 billion in 2017 despite the sale and deconsolidation of Dürr Ecoclean. Order intake should move in a range of € 3.3 to 3.7 billion. Accordingly, orders on hand come to € 2.4 to 2.9 billion (2016: € 2.6 billion). From today´s perspective, EBIT margin should reach between 7.5 to 8.25%. We expect a book gain of € 25 million from the Ecoclean sale; this gain is included in our margin forecast.
As a supplier of production lines, in particular for the automotive as well as the furniture industry, Dürr depends on the investment behavior of the manufacturer. This is largely determined by the expected production in the coming years.
