"With key technology trends continuing undiminished, the main drivers of Bertrandt’s business performance are unchanged", CEO Dietmar Bichler said when commenting on the disclosure of the six-month results for fis-cal 2016/2017. An increasing variety of models and variants, environmen-tally friendly individual mobility as well as connected and automated driv-ing continue to offer business opportunities in the future. Industry 4.0 opens up additional opportunities in key industries, such as the energy and electrical engineering industry, medical technology as well as the machinery and plant engineering sectors. According to Management’s expectations these trends ensure that the medium-term economic condi-tions are positive for the Company’s business model.
