The Datwyler Group had to contend with significant negative currency effects in 2015 following conversion of revenue and profit into Swiss francs. Net revenue amounted to CHF 1’165.2 million, which equates to organic growth of 1.8% (adjusted for currency effects). In spite of the challenging climate, the EBIT margin of 10.8% was almost as high as the previous year. The operating result (EBIT) was down slightly at CHF 126.1 million. At the previous year’s exchange rates this represents a slight increase. The net result decreased to CHF 82.2 million. Given the solid profitability and the promising prospects for the future, an unchanged cash dividend of CHF 2.20 per bearer share will be proposed to the General Meeting of Shareholders. Thanks to the new shared infrastructure platform in the Technical Components division and the strong market positions of the Sealing Solutions division, Datwyler is feeling confident about 2016.
