Posted at 5:46PM Friday 31 Jan 2014

Operating EBITDA improved from €2.2 billion in the previous year to €2.3 billion. At €1.7 billion, operating EBIT matched the previous year's high level despite expenses and scheduled start-up losses for digitization projects and new businesses. The Group's Return on Sales once again exceeded the 10-percent mark. Group net income is expected to exceed €800 million, putting it well above the adjusted prior-year value of €612 million.
