ZMDI Pushes Business with Standard Products

ZMD AG has slightly raised its revenue projection for the current fiscal year. Based on its nine-month figures from today’s vantage point, ZMDI expects 2011 revenues to total about EUR 62 million, equivalent to a gain of about 12 percent over 2010. Thus ZMDI should outperform the growth rate for the market at large, which is in the upper single digits. Given the strong performance of its business in green technologies, the company had already increased its projection for revenue growth to 10 percent in May. In terms of profits, the Executive Board has reconfirmed its previous projection, and still expects an EBIT of about EUR 4.5 million for 2011. ZMDI’s revenues for 2010 came to EUR 55.1 million, and EBIT was EUR 1.1 million.
