Metall Zug Group: Profitable growth in 2016

Zug, January 30, 2017 – The Metall Zug Group expects a disproportionately high rise in operating income for the 2016 financial year on the back of an increase in sales compared with the previous year.


In the 2016 financial year, the Metall Zug Group generated gross sales of just over CHF 950 million (2015: CHF 928 million). The Metall Zug Group anticipates an increase in operating income (EBIT) year on year to more than CHF 90 million (2015: CHF 81 million). The gain on disposal of the Ballwil site amounting to CHF 5 million is included under operating income. All three Business Units saw a rise in operating income, particularly Household Appliances. The financial result also improved compared with the prior year (2015: CHF -8.2 million).


Metall Zug AG will publish its complete results for the 2016 financial year together with the figures for the Business Units on March 23, 2017. The 2016 Annual Report containing the detailed financial report will also be available as of this date on the website
