Larger order entries reinforce the basis for growth in the current financial year
ISRA VISION AG: Additional orders underscore ISRA's internationally leading technology in the Specialty Paper niche market
With this second large order in a short period of time and the contractual option to an additional order volume of close to three million Euros, ISRA underscores its technological leadership in the inspection of banknote paper. This allows the company to reinforce its strong position in the international market in the demanding area of Specialty Paper. ISRA is striving for portfolio expansion in the future with additional technologically complex applications in the area of banknote production.
After a revenue increase of 16 percent to 75.2 mill. Euros and an EBT increase of 25 percent to 13.2 mill. Euros in the previous financial year 2010/2011 (10-01 to 09-30), ISRA plans on growing further in the current financial year 2011/2012 as communicated earlier. The previous and present indicators, such as the large orders mentioned above, create a good foundation for growth. Due to the market situation, the actual growth is expected to be in the lower range of double-digit growth.
