BOWE SYSTEC AG
Distinct Growth in Sales and EBITDA Thanks to the Full Consolidation of BOWE Bell + Howell, USA
AUGSBURG, Germany, Nov. 10, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- BOWE SYSTEC continues along the growth path. With new record levels in sales and order intake in the third quarter of the current financial year, the company has succeeded in building on the successful trend of the first half year. As was already the case in the financial statement for the first half year of 2005, the full consolidation of the U.S. company BOWE Bell + Howell at the beginning of the year has led to a further welcome rise in the group value vis-a-vis the previous year. A comparison with the figures for the same period of the previous year is therefore only possible to a limited extent.
