Compared with the same period of the previous year, Rieter´s order intake increased by 92% to 1´615.3 million CHF (840.0 million CHF in 2009) and sales grew by 34% to 1´201.3 million CHF (899.8 million CHF in 2009). The Rieter Group and both divisions returned to profit at the operating level. The Rieter Group achieved an operating result before interest and taxes (EBIT) of 14.6 million CHF in the first six months. Rieter will reach the announced turnaround and expects to reaffirm the positive half-year operating result for the 2010 financial year as a whole.
