Ad-hoc disclosure: Profit at new record level

Sales of CHF 559.7 million in consolidated currency were maintained at the previous year's level, while in local currency they rose by 2.3%. Interroll was able to fully compensate for the one-off major project orders received in the United States in the 2018 financial year by increasing its product business and, above all, by generating sales growth in smaller and medium-sized project orders during the 2019 financial year. Interroll's innovative platform solutions and services made a significant contribution to this gratifying result.

At CHF 546.5 million, incoming orders in 2019 were -7.8% below the previous year (-5.7% in local currency), as expected. In addition to the aforementioned loss of one-off major orders, the second half of the year saw a slowdown in business momentum in the markets.

Interroll expects net profit to increase by at least 5% compared with the previous year's figure; the company has once again made substantial progress in terms of operating cash flow.

"Our sustained high pace of innovation as well as our global market presence and consistent improvements in productivity have contributed to the encouraging result for the past financial year despite a challenging market environment," explains Paul Zumbühl, CEO Interroll Worldwide Group. "We have started the new year with confidence and anticipate positive momentum in the global markets for material flow solutions.“

The complete Interroll Annual Report 2019 with the final, audited figures will be presented at the Annual Media Conference on March 20, 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland.
