On June 7, 2012, Voith Group, a leading global provider of technology and industrial services, recently announced its financial results for the first half of 2011/2012 as of March 31, 2012. The financial report shows that although the global economic situation is turbulent, Voith Group's overall performance has steadily increased. Its sales revenue for the first half of the fiscal year reached 2.7 billion euros, an increase of 4% compared to the same period, while holding orders for nearly 6 billion euros.

Dr. Hubert Lienhard, President and CEO of Voith Group, stated: “Despite the severe market situation, Voith once again proved that its business model is full of vitality. With our diversified product portfolio and solid market position, we were able to make a weak market. Under the circumstances, we have achieved satisfactory results."

Voith's four business units have a more balanced contribution to the Group's revenue and can help Voith Group respond to the drastic changes in the individual market.
