OUTLOOK Semperit expects a satisfactory revenue and earnings development also for the entire year 2010 on the basis of the good order volume at the end of the third quarter.

Nevertheless, the flexibility of Semperit´s production sites enables the company to quickly adapt to different economic conditions and fluctuating market requirements.
