Outlook

During 2013 we have continued reinforcing our presence in all markets through the expansion of the existing subsidiaries and the incorporation of several small scale acquisitions, being the takeover of the remaining 49% shares of the Indian subsidiary the most noticeable one.

As a result of the good business development all our manufacturing facilities have benefited from increased demand and several investments have been put in place to improve their quality and operational excellence.

In the first half of 2014, we experience an acceleration of the growth in all markets and we remain optimistic about another successful business year.

The shareholders and the management team thank all Habasit employees for their contribution and remain committed to continue investing in the company.
