The consistent focus on connectivity and security, and the substantial investments made in recent years, have paid off. The group expects the positive business trend to continue despite cautious macroeconomic forecasts.
At EUR 2.14 billion, revenue was 4.9 percent higher than in the previous year, while incoming orders rose by 10.6 percent to EUR 2.45 billion. The number of employees worldwide climbed from 11,500 to around 12,100 by June 30, 2019.
