The DATA MODUL Group will thus find further growth opportunities in 2015, arising from the overall economic situation and from new products developed to market-readiness - despite fierce competition. We will therefore consequently continue reviewing all our product lines with regard to profitability and adjust our strategic product orientation if necessary. We will nevertheless consequently pursue our strategic goals with a view to remaining on the trajectory of recent years. In view of the positive market environment however, the DATA MODUL Executive Board believes in a good fiscal year 2015. We expect the productivity-raising measures implemented over recent years to come to fruition, adding lasting value, which however may be impacted by special charges.
