TEUR |11,830 |7,984 |+48.2% | Group performance The LPKF Group increased its turnover by 6.2 % in the first quarter 2008, and was therefore well short of the target. EBIT registered a loss of TEUR 317. However, the orders in hand in the first three months rose by TEUR 5,062 to TEUR 12,684. The high level of orders received was mainly attributable to long term orders in the Solar segment, and orders in the Rapid Prototyping and Plastic Welding segments. The Stencil segment was able to considerably boost its level of orders received in the first quarter with the launch of two new machine models: the associated sales will largely be realised in the second quarter. The performance of the PCB Processing and MID segments was lower than expected. Outlook The Board of Managing Directors considers the weak turnover performance in the first quarter to be a temporary anomaly, and rates the excellent level of orders in hand as a clear sign for a stronger second quarter and a positive Group performance in the first half of the 2008 financial year.
