    Kontron doubles its earnings

    Kontron Embedded Computers AG, one of the leading suppliers of embedded computers worldwide, doubled earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) of DM 16,4 million in 1999 to 29,6 million DM in financial year 2000. Revenues did grow to 247 Mio DM. This corresponds to an increase of more than 140% compared to the previous year (99,2 million DM). At the same time the annual surplus rose from 11 million DM in 1999 to 23,4 million DM in 2000. The earnings per share amounted to 1,17 Euro. The order entry developed even better than revenues. The orders received could be tripled from 100 million DM in 1999 to 302 million DM in the year 2000. Particularly because of the IPO in April, the balance sheet total of the group increased to 463 million DM against 116 million DM before. The number of employees rose from 390 to 772 including 312 engineers working in Research and Development. Based on the positive order entry and the acquisitions in the year 2000, Kontron is planning to almost double its turnover to about 475 million DM in the business year 2001. Net earnings should also double to 43 million DM.
