Performance in financial year 2017/18

Overall, results for the 2017/18 financial year were solid, but did not meet our expectations. Consolidated net sales increased by 12.7% to CHF 2,841.0 million. The organic sales growth for the 2017/18 financial year amounted to 2.6%. The EBITDA rose by 11.3% to CHF 431.0 million, with an EBITDA margin of 15.2%. All acquisitions since the dormakaba merger have positively contributed to these results. Net profit was 6.3% higher than in the previous financial year at CHF 238.7 million. Consequently, the payout under the short-term incentive was below that of the previous year.
