Due to unexpected positive incoming orders - particularly from the Asian market - the business performance is better than planned. Therefore, the management board of Basler AG is increasing today the sales forecast for fiscal year 2014 from Euro 70 - 74 million to Euro 73 - 76 million. Furthermore, positive margin effects due to a favorable product mix as well as economies of scale for fixed costs lead to an above plan pre-tax result. This prompts the management board to also increase the profit forecast for fiscal year 2014. Since a significant cooling in the second half of fiscal year 2014 is not expected, the company henceforth expects a pre-tax return margin of 12 - 14 % (formerly 8 - 10 %). Basler is a leading developer and manufacturer of high grade digital cameras for applications in industry, video surveillance, medicine, and traffic. Product development is driven by industry requirements. The cameras provide easy integration, compact sizes, and an outstanding price/performance ratio. Basler has more than 25 years of experience in image processing and has been developing and producing high grade digital cameras for 15 years.
