In the second quarter of 2015 Koenig & Bauer (KBA) came significantly closer to achieving its target of positive results in all business segments. At €607.5m, its order intake was up 33.2 percent year over year. The company believes that positive results in all business areas are within reach. President and CEO Claus Bolza-Schünemann stated, "Group profit before taxes of €6.9m in the second quarter led to an improvement in our EBT from –€17.7m after three months to –€10.8m mid-year. We are particularly pleased with the major improvements in earnings in Sheetfed and Digital and Web. Despite this half-time shortfall, with catching-up in mind we continue to target an EBT margin of up to 2 percent of sales for 2015."
