The Jungheinrich Group stayed its successful course for growth in the first quarter of the 2016 financial year. Following all-time highs in fiscal 2015, incoming orders, net sales and EBIT in the first three months of 2016 were increased substantially compared to the same period last year.
Dr. Volker Hues, CFO of Jungheinrich AG: “The first three months of 2016 have demonstrated that we are right on schedule and maintaining our course for growth with resolve. We outperformed both the market and the relevant competition yet again. The very good incoming orders and high level of orders on hand, resulting in an order reach of nearly five months, give us reason to have a positive outlook on 2016. On this basis, we uphold the forecast for the current fiscal year, envisaging net sales of 2.9 to 3.0 billion euros and EBIT between 220 and 230 million euros.”
