Bobst Group confirms its full year outlook presented on 25 July 2022. While it remains possible to reach the profit guidance of 7 to 8% operating result (EBIT) margin, the company says this goal has become ambitious as the supply chain situation did not sufficiently improve since August.
Order intake in the last months was still on a good level, but, as expected, below the exceptionally high level recorded in the first half of 2022. The Group expects full year sales of CHF 1.7 to 1.8 bn for 2022. The long-term financial targets of at least 8% operating result (EBIT) and a minimum 20% return on capital employed (ROCE) are confirmed.
