The business of the Jenoptik Group developed positively throughout the 1st half year 2012. Jenoptik benefits from the continuing implementation of its strategy of internationalization, the winning of new customers in the system business as well as from the better than expected business in Lasers & Optical Systems and Metrology segments. On this basis, the Executive Board of JENOPTIK AG today raised its forecasts for the full fiscal year 2012. Sales are now anticipated to increase by 5 to 10 percent (previous forecast 4 to 8 percent). The Executive Board expects the Group EBIT to come in between 50 and 55 million euros (previous forecast 45 to 50 million euros). The Jenoptik Group therefore expects to post also a successful 2012 fiscal year.
