In the first half of 2018, the Datwyler Group increased its net revenue by 7.7% to CHF 694.1 million. Both
divisions grew their revenue, with demand for high-quality seal components for the health care industry
in particular outstripping market growth. The Group’s EBIT margin improved to 13.1%, while the net result
rose by 17.3% to CHF 62.5 million. For the year as a whole, Datwyler is expecting net revenue of between
CHF 1'350 million and CHF 1'400 million and an EBIT margin within the 12%-to-15% target range. Some
promising acquisition projects should generate additional momentum in the second half of the year.
