Carl Zeiss Continues on Track to Further Growth and Investment

STUTTGART, Germany, December 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Strong Portfolio Offsets Cyclical Fluctuations in the Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology Business Group

The Carl Zeiss Group ended fiscal year 2011/12 with a two percent increase in revenue to a total of EUR 4.163 billion (prior year*: EUR 4.084 billion). EBIT totaled EUR 420 million (prior year*: EUR 608 million). "2011/12 was a very successful fiscal year for Carl Zeiss. "We have surpassed the figure we forecast last year: revenue is slightly above the equivalent total in the prior year," said Dr. Michael Kaschke, President and CEO of Carl Zeiss. "What is particularly notable is that our strong portfolio has enabled us to successfully offset the cyclical downturn in the revenue of the Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology business group. This would not have been possible just a few years ago."  

In 2011/12 Carl Zeiss hired 900 new recruits worldwide and increased its investments in research and development by 14 percent. Investments in property, plant and equipment totaled EUR 289 million, allowing the company to modernize and expand its global infrastructure.
