Carl Zeiss: Revenue Tops Four Billion Euro Mark for Very First Time

16-Dec-2011 - Germany

Carl Zeiss ended fiscal year 2010/11 (reporting date: 30 September 2011) with a clear increase in revenue and earnings over the prior year: with a total of EUR 4.237b, revenue topped the four billion euro mark for the very first time (prior year: EUR 2.981b). Earnings (EbIT) totaled EUR 607m (prior year: EUR 423m). The positive development in business, bolstered by a favorable trend in the economy at the beginning of the past fiscal year, was sustained both by strong organic growth in revenue (ten percent above the prior year) particularly in Asia and America and in the Industrial metrology, Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology and Medical Technology business groups, and by the full consolidation of the Vision Care business group.

“We have achieved record figures for almost all performance indicators,” said Michael Kaschke, President and CEO of Carl Zeiss. “Carl Zeiss has remained on track to continued profitable and sustained growth and has further consolidated its position as a technology leader and global player.”
