FORTEC group increases EBIT forecast
The FORTEC board of directors is pleased by the positive business performance in the first nine months. The achieved results confirm the company's path to success. An business backlog of 48 million Euros provides an excellent basis for the upcoming months. The forthcoming relocation of the subsidiary Emtron to the new company building in Riedstadt provides the foundation for future growth. Against this background the board of directors is confident about the sales revenue forecast. In a complex geopolitical situation FORTEC group maintains cautious optimism for business year 2018/2019 and expects an organic revenue growth in the middle single-digit range plus 6 million Euros revenue from the acquired UK companies. Depending on the further development of the inventory change and due to the positive business development we slightly enhance our EBIT forecast to approx. 7.5 million Euros.
