Basler AG publishes above forecast preliminary result for the first half year of 2020



Ahrensburg, July 9, 2020 - BASLER AG, the leading global manufacturer of industrial cameras, is releasing preliminary figures today for the first half year of 2020.



In the first six months of 2020, sales amount to Euro 88.9 million (previous year: Euro 81.7 million) and thus are slightly above the previously expected sales corridor of Euro 86 million - Euro 88 million.



The pre-tax result for the first two quarters amounts to Euro 12.8 million (previous year: Euro 7.2 million). This results in a pre-tax return rate of 14.4 % also exceeding the forecasted corridor of 12 - 13 %.



This very positive development is due to a strong demand from the semiconductor / electronics, medical, and logistics industries. Moreover, Covid-19 related risks in the supply chain and the production were successfully managed by the company in the first half year.



The full reporting for the first half year will be released on August 6, 2020, according to schedule. In the framework of the reporting, the management board will also give a forecast for the full financial year 2020.
