Arbon, 27 February 2018 – Including the discontinued operations (Condecta and Profile Systems Business Unit), Arbonia increased its consolidated turnover by 38.5% to CHF 1378.5 million. When adjusted for currency and acquisition effects, growth amounted to 1.5%. Consolidated revenue for the continuing operations (without Condecta and Profile Systems Business Unit) rose by 35.9% to CHF 1245.6 million. On a pro forma basis (including the doors business of the Looser and Koralle Group), Arbonia achieved growth of 2.6%, when adjusted for currency and acquisition effects. This growth was achieved in a financial year that was marked by production facility relocations, rising raw material prices and the integration of the doors business of the Looser and Koralle Group.

It was possible to increase EBITDA from continuing operations by 84.2% and it was therefore disproportionately high when compared to revenue. Arbonia achieved a group result of CHF 46.4 million (previous year CHF 7.6 million).

The net revenue from continuing operations (without Condecta and Forster Profile Systems) increased in 2017 by 35.9% to CHF 1245.6 million. On a pro forma basis (including the door business of the Looser and Koralle Group), Arbonia achieved a growth of 2.6%, when adjusted for currency and acquisition effects. This growth was achieved in a financial year, which was marked by production facility relocations, rising raw material prices and the integration of the Looser door business and the Koralle Group door business. Due to a strong 4th quarter, the growth of the continuing operations in the second half of 2017 amounted to 5%.
 

Arbonia's Sanitary Equipment business has reached a strategic size and importance, meaning the Arbonia Group has decided to split the Building Technology division starting in 2018 into two business units: the HVAC Division (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) and the Sanitary Equipment Division.
