The mechanical engineering group GEA at an investor conference in New York estimated its preliminary order intake for fiscal year 2013 to exceed EUR 6 billion.

This is in line with expectations of the capital market. GEA’s core business – i.e. without the segment Heat Exchangers which is to be divested this year – thus achieved an organic year-on-year increase by 5 to 6 percent. 

GEA will issue preliminary key figures for fiscal 2013 and the outlook for 2014 at the annual financial press conference in Düsseldorf on February 6, 2013. The audited annual report will be released on March 7, 2014.
