• Revenues at euro 1,934 million
• Net cash of euro 183 million
• Order portfolio at euro 10,889 million
• New order intake of euro 1,843 million

The first half of 2013 reports an EBIT of euro 101 million (euro 34 million at 30.06.2012), an EBITDA of euro 137 million (euro 68 million at 30.06.2012) and revenues of euro 1,934 million (euro 1,233 million at 30.06.2012).
