annual report


The stock-listed medical device technology manufacturer WORLD OF MEDICINE achieved a 15.8% growth in sales to TE35,746 for fiscal year 2007. Its pre-tax sales yield equaled 16.5%. In October 2007, the Management Board projected an increase in sales of at least 10% to more than E34 million, and a pre-tax sales yield of at least 13.0%. Strategically significant product launches contributed to the favorable business performance. In addition, one-time earnings from the sale of former subsidiary, IB Laser AG, added E1.1 million before taxes.

A pre-tax sales yield of 11% is projected for 2008, and an increase in sales of 7%. The Management Board, however, may pursue further investment in future- oriented projects. If necessary, it will also accept a temporary reduction of the sales yield in order to accomplish these future goals.@@end@@
