Half year results 2009: VOGT electronic sees small signs of turnaround
The decline in sales affected all industry sectors and regions. The revenue in automotive electronics contributing more than 54% to the total revenue of the Group declined strongly by
-45.4.1% compared to previous year period. The demand was also strongly slowing down in industrial electronics with -36.7% and consumer electronics with -27.5% compared to first half year 2008.
An exact prediction how demand will develop in future is still difficult. Across all industry sectors there are still no signs showing an end of the recession. As many customers reduced their stocks to a minimum VOGT electronic sees at least a moderate increase in demand for the 2nd half of the year. Against this background VOGT electronic expects a slightly increasing revenue for the 2nd half of the year compared to first 6 months and improved operational results due to sustaining cost savings.
