The turnover of Swisslog (continuing activities) decreased during the first half-year to MCHF 267.0 as compared to MCHF 305.5 in the same period last year. Sales in the "Warehouse & Distribution Solutions" division dropped from MCHF 212.3 in the first half-year 2004 to MCHF 171.3 in the first semester 2005 due to the reduced order intake in 2004. The "Healthcare Solutions" division was able to slightly increase sales to MCHF 89.7 (2004: CHF 87.9 million). Sales of the "Consulting Services/Wassermann" division fell from MCHF 7.9 in the first semester 2004 to MCHF 7.0 in 2005.

Operating result on previous year's level

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and goodwill-amortization (EBITDA) of the contin-uing activities are with MCHF 11.2 on last year's level. The operating result (EBITDA) of the "Warehouse & Distribution Solutions" division fell from MCHF 13.2 in the first semester 2004 to MCHF 7.8 in the same period 2005. The "Healthcare Solutions" division was able to increase its operating result (EBITDA) from MCHF 1.8 in the first half-year 2004 to MCHF 9.1 in 2005. "The last year result of the Healthcare Solutions division was burdened with restructuring and one-off costs," comments Swisslog-CEO Remo Brunschwiler. The third division "Consulting Services/Wassermann", recorded a decrease of MCHF 0.4 in its operating result to MCHF 0.6.

Increase in order intake
Order intake for Swisslog's continuing activities rose in the first half of 2005 to MCHF 281.3 as compared to MCH 231.7 during the same period last year. The associated order backlog amounted to MCHF 443.2 (2004: MCHF 378.1). Order intake for the "Warehouse & Distribution Solutions" division increased from MCHF 143.4 in the first semester 2004 to MCHF 169.2 in the first half-year 2005. The associated order backlog improved from MCHF 246.9 in 2004 to MCHF 303.5. "The demand for logistics solutions as offered by Swisslog is still on a low level in Continental Europe. The situation is different in North America, Australia and England, where we experience an increasing demand for our solutions", says Brunschwiler. The "Healthcare Solutions" division was able to increase its order intake from MCHF 82.4 in the first semester 2004 to MCHF 105.3 in 2005. The order backlog rose from MCHF 126.2 to MCHF 138.1. "The higher order intake can be mainly attributed to our pneumatic tube and automated guided vehicle transport systems business. Also the sales for the PillPick drug commissioning system are now within our expectations, after a difficult market introduction in 2004," reports Brunschwiler. Order intake for the "Consulting Services/Wassermann" division dropped to MCHF 7.4 (2004: MCHF 8.2). Order backlog fell from MCHF 6.3 in 2004 to MCHF 2.0 this year.

Positive currency effects
Due to positive currency translation effects, Swisslog's equity ratio rose from 16% to 19% respectively from MCHF 68.4 to MCHF 73.9 as compared to 2004 year-end result.

Additional orders from major customers
Wal-Mart, the worldwide biggest retail chain has awarded to Swisslog in June 2005 a new distribution center in the USA. The order has been booked in June. Furthermore, Swisslog received an order from PepsiCo in August 2005 to build a new warehouse in England

Outlook
"We expect the turnover for 2005 to reach last year's level. For the order intake and order backlog we expect a growing figure. Overall, we anticipate a break-even result for the fiscal year 2005", says Brunschwiler.

schlechte Zahlen? oder nur alles in die Bilanz

aufnehmen, damit im nächsten Jahr ein erfolgreiches Jahr kommt.
Swisslog ist eine Turnaround-Chance
zuerst machten sie eine Kapitalerhöhung, mit diesem Geld haben sie ihre Eigenkapitalbasis verbessert, kauften die Wandelanleihe zurück und entschuldeten sich.
Dann haben sie noch eine Wertberichtigung in die Bilanz gepackt, so dass kein gutes Ergebnis herauskommen konnte. Übrigens im operativen Geschäft sind sie profitabler geworden.
Diese Art von Sanierung war vor einem Jahr bei Alstom zu sehen, am Anfang wollte keiner diese Aktie haben, mittlerweile hat sie über 300 % gemacht.
Dies soll aber nicht heissen, dass bei Swisslog ähnliches passiert. Das kann nur der Markt entscheiden!
