Komax Group’s Solar and Medtech suffered in the first half of 2012.

In the first half of 2012, Komax said they felt the repercussions of the ongoing crisis in the photovoltaics industry and the reticent ordering behaviour of customers in the Medtech area. As a result, revenues declined by 23.0% to CHF 142.3 million. The operating profit (EBIT) was at CHF 9.0 million (–66.2%), and Group profit after taxes came in at CHF 9.0 million (previous year: CHF 17.0 million), which equates to a net profit margin of 6.3%. Free cash flow increased to CHF 17.2 million (previous year: CHF –10.4 million).
