According to preliminary results, an increase in sales of almost 56 percent has been achieved as compared with the business year 1999. This means that Mühlbauer was even able to significantly surpass its goal - announced in the year of IPO - of doubling sales as compared with 1997 (EUR 49.5 million). In the 4th quarter of 2000, sales again increased by over 25 percent to about EUR 34 million, despite the high level of EUR 27 million from the preceding year. The book to bill ratio for 2000 is 1.23 (1.20 in the 4th quarter of 2000). Incoming orders increased by almost 48 percent to over EUR 136 million (preceding year: EUR 92 million). This figure of over EUR 40 million in incoming orders means an increase of almost 37 percent as compared with the 4th quarter of 1999 (EUR 29.6 million). The area of Smart Identification juts especially out with a rate of increase of over 70 percent. An increase of more than 84 percent to over EUR 56 million (preceding year: EUR 30.6 million) is reported for the order backlog at the end of the year 2000. This positive overall development continues in the first two weeks of the business year 2001. Detailed results of the business year 2000 will be presented by CEO and CFO at the press conference on March 27, 2001 in Munich. Then also the detailed Annual Report 2000 will be published.
