Burgdorf – Ypsomed increases EBIT margin in double digits and raises the forecast for the business year 2015/16 clearly.
In the first half-year of 2015/16, the Ypsomed Group generated consolidated sales totalling CHF 157.8 million, CHF 9.3 million more than for the same period of the previous year (CHF 148.5 million), which corresponds to an increase of 6.2%. The year-on-year operating results (EBIT) increased by a solid 50.1% or CHF 6.5 million to CHF 19.4 million and thus reached the EBIT margin of 12.3% (previous year: 8.7%). This result has been realised despite the ongoing challenging currency situation. Had the exchange rate remained at CHF 1.20, turnover for the reporting period would have amounted to CHF 168.9 million (growth versus the previous year approximately 14%), with an EBIT of CHF 23.9 million (growth of approximately 85%).
