The Oerlikon Group delivered another strong performance in 2013, despite a challenging environment in major end-markets. Order intake grew by 3.2 %, sales remained at prior year level (-0.8 %).
 
An EBIT margin of 12.7 % confirmed Oerlikon’s profitability level, which positions the Group amongst leading industrial peers. Oerlikon’s Manmade Fibers and Coating Segments delivered record margins and continued to operate on Best-in-Class levels. 
 
Strong operational performance and the proceeds from the divestments improved net liquidity to CHF 981 million (FY 2012: CHF 339 million) and equity ratio to 51 %. Oerlikon CEO Dr. Brice Koch said: “Based on strong performance in 2013, we can now accelerate profitable growth, both organically and inorganically, in line with a disciplined execution of our strategic agenda. The recent signing of the acquisition of Sulzer Metco is a first key milestone in this direction.”
