Dr. Helmut Schmale, CFO of GEA Group Aktiengesellschaft, estimated the group’s order intake for fiscal year 2012, subject to the final audit, to be approximately EUR 5.9 billion at an investor conference in New York on January 15, 2013. This represents a year-on-year increase of 5 percent and is thus in line with expectations.

GEA will issue preliminary key figures for fiscal 2012 and the outlook for 2013 at the annual financial press conference in Düsseldorf on February 6, 2013.
