Immsi Group financial and business performance at 30 June 2019 

The Immsi Group is continuing its strategic focus on geographical expansion consistent with product strategies and with world macro-economic trends. This management model significantly reduces the risks of an excessive concentration of production and sources of income in a single country, and enables the Group to maximise returns in countries with the highest economic growth rates. At the same time, on-going analysis of the latest international trade policies and current socio-political developments confirms that geographical diversification enables the Group to meet the growing demand for quality among all the customers of its subsidiaries without increasing production costs, while simultaneously improving time to market.

Consolidated net sales in the first half to 30 June 2019 totalled 851 million euro, up by 9.9% from 774.1 million euro in the year-earlier period. At constant exchange rates, consolidated net sales rose by 8.7%.
