Hamburg (ots) -

   - Incoming orders: +14%, net sales: +12% and net income: +12%    
   - EBIT: +10% to EUR 235 million 
   - Production output: > 100,000 units for the first time 
   - Dividend proposal: +10% 
   - Start of 2017: double-digit growth 
   - Net sales forecast for 2017: EUR 3.3 - 3.4 billion 

The Jungheinrich Group closed the 2016 financial year successfully, posting significant increases in all key performance indicators. The main growth drivers were new truck business and the 'Logistics Systems' Division. New record highs were achieved in terms of incoming orders, net sales, production and all earnings figures. The key performance indicators were improved considerably in the first two months of the year underway as well.

Hans-Georg Frey, Chairman of the Board of Management of Jungheinrich AG: "We stayed our strong course for growth in 2016. For the first time, we surpassed the EUR 3 billion mark in terms of both net sales and incoming orders. We outgrew our peer group and expanded our share of the global market. Jungheinrich is right on track towards achieving its strategic goal for 2020.

In 2016, the Group's earnings were boosted to EUR 154 million. Jungheinrich has steadily increased its earnings for the benefit of its shareholders in recent years. The good level of incoming orders by the end of last year has been maintained this year and gives us a positive outlook on the first six months underway. Based on the good figures posted in the first two months of the current year, if the developments witnessed in 2017 thus far continue, we should be able to achieve incoming orders of between EUR 3.4 and EUR 3.5 billion and consolidated net sales in the range of EUR 3.3 to EUR 3.4 billion. Based on our assessments, EBIT for the current fiscal year should total between EUR 250 and EUR 260 million."
