A Successful First Half Year for ZEISS
The positive trend continues at the ZEISS Group, which had a positive end to the first six months of fiscal year 2021/22 (ended 31 March 2022) that was significantly higher than the very good result seen in the previous year: revenue increased by 20% to 4.1 billion euros (prior year: 3.4 billion euros). At 736 million euros, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) were also significantly higher than the prior-year period (prior year: 591 million euros). The EBIT margin is 18%. The high level of incoming orders also continued in the first half of the new fiscal year. Incoming orders increased to 5.49 billion euros (prior year: 4.20 billion euros).
“We have had a good start to the fiscal year with revenue in the first half of the year once again exceeding the very good level from last year. All four ZEISS segments have contributed to this considerable growth dynamic despite challenging conditions,” said Dr. Karl Lamprecht, President & CEO of ZEISS. “We have a global setup, a broad portfolio and have even increased our expenditure on research and development. We are reaping the benefits of this at the moment, and this is reflected in our half-year figures, our growth and our capacity for innovation.”
To date, ZEISS has also been in a position to maintain the high level of incoming orders and revenue in the first half of the new fiscal year with considerable growth dynamics across all four segments.
