Eching near Munich, Germany April 18, 2002 - Kontron Embedded Computers AG has achieved a turnover of approximately 47 million euros in the first quarter of 2002 in spite of the continued poor state of the global economy and has thus underlined the upswing of the fourth quarter of 2001 (48 million euros). Orders on hand as of March 31st of this year are in excess of 50 million euros.
According to the Kontron Board, this positive development can be traced back to good growth rates on the European market. The Kontron Board is optimistic especially with regard to the planned fusion with JUMPtec Industrielle Computertechnik AG in Deggendorf around the middle of the year. Together orders on hand amount to approximately 100 million euros which represents a solid basis for growth. The final and detailed figures for the first quarter are to be published at the end of May.
