Due to the continued high demand for turnkey solutions for all imaginable SmartCard and semiconductor applications, the high-tech company has recorded an order income of almost 39 million EUR from July to September, and has thus achieved an all-time quarter record in its company's history. This means a further increase of 26 percent, despite the high level of the previous year, which amounted to 30.7 million EUR. Based on the last nine months, order income has climbed to 95.8 million EUR, and thus to over 53 percent above the comparable period of the previous year (62.5 million EUR). In absolute terms, the Mühlbauer Group has thus already surpassed the total year 1999 (92.2 million EUR) as of 30 September 2000. With 26.4 million EUR, turnover has surpassed the comparable value of the previous year (16 million EUR) during the report period by over 64 percent. In comparison to the first nine months of 1999 (44.2 million EUR), turnover in the comparable period of 2000 has risen by almost 74 percent to 76.9 million EUR, thus already surpassing turnover for the total year of 1999 (71 million EUR). Due to the continued positive development of business and order backlog, valued at 45.2 million EUR as of 30 September 2000 (previous year: 33.3 million EUR), the Board of Directors intends to correct once again the turnover goal upwards for the total year 2000, which in August 2000 was raised from originally 85 million EUR to 100 million EUR. With the recent transfer of construction investment to the competency centre in Stollberg, which took place according to schedule, the capacities necessary for series production of highly-precise components and complex systems have been practically doubled. Expansion of the space in the main office in Roding is also fully underway and running according to plan. The first construction segment will be ready to be moved into already on 1 December 2000. The capacities will be tripled by April of next year. The detailed report on the third quarter can be viewed as of 14 November 2000 on the Internet, at www.muehlbauer.de.
