Highlights
• Year-end 2009 order backlog 35.4% down year on year at EUR 2.1 billion (bn) (30 September 2009: EUR 2.4bn), depressed by weak order intake, especially in the Plant Construction Division
• Revenue down by 8.0% to EUR 2,995.1 million (m) due to slack investment owing to the economic crisis
• Group EBITDA more than doubled to EUR 211.2m (2008: EUR 77.3m), lifted by solid operating performance and early adjustments of the cost base • Surge in EBIT to EUR 143.1m (2008: EUR 19.4m) driven by strong performance by the Plant Construction and Minerals & Metals divisions; EBIT margin 4.8% (2008:
0.6%)
• Earnings before tax (EBT) for 2009 positive by EUR 88.3m following a loss of EUR 12.3m in 2008
• Consolidated profit for the year of EUR 53.7m (2008: consolidated loss of EUR -33.7m)
• Fall in revenue to some EUR 2.7bn and an EBIT margin of around 3% expected in 2010, owing to the fall-off in order intake in 2009 and anticipated slow economic growth this year
