Schaffner Group confirms strong demand in 1st quarter of 2006/2007

    Luterbach (ots)- Over the business first quarter of 2006/2007, Schaffner Holding AG (SWX Swiss Exchange: SAHN) increased its net sales of electromagnetic-compatibility and power-quality components by 16.7% on the previous year's figure to CHF 34.1 million (CHF 29.3 million). Adjusted for currency effects, the rise in sales amounted to 15.5%. At the same time, order intake increased by 31.1% to CHF 45.9 million (CHF 35.1 million). The book-to-bill ratio for the first three months of the current business year came to 1.35. Adjusted for the influence of Schaffner Jacke GmbH, which has been consoli-dated for the first time, both net sales, at CHF 29.6 million, and order intake, at CHF 36.5 million, slightly exceeded the previous year's excellent figures. Including the EMC test systems business, which was sold at the end of November 2006 as part of a management buyout, and the last test systems activity, Cable & ElectroEmulation, which is up for sale, the Schaffner Group achieved net sales of CHF 43.0 million and an accumulated order intake of CHF 54.1 million.
