              The group's sales increased in the fiscal year 2014 by 22 % to € 79.2 million (previous year: € 65.1 million). The gross profit margin increased to 51.8%, after 49.9 % in the previous year. The earnings before taxes totaled € 11.1 million (previous year: € 7.8 million, +42 %). The pre-tax return rate amounted to 14 % (previous year: 12%). With these results, the previous guidance communicated by us has been achieved at the upper end.

              The cash flow from operational activity amounted to € 16.0 million (previous year: € 12.1 million, +32 %). The free cash flow, calculated as the sum of cash flows from operational activity and investment, reached a value of € 7.4 million (previous year: € 5.6 million, +32 %).

              In 2014, we achieved the best results in our over 25-year history. In this context, we will propose to this year's shareholders’ meeting the distribution of a dividend of 70 cents per share.

              For the fiscal year 2015, we expect an increase of sales to between € 81 million and € 84 million. Due to attractive growth opportunities in the industrial camera market, investments in future sales growth will continue with unabated intensity. As far as earnings are concerned, we are assuming a solid pre-tax return rate between 9 % and 10 %, depending on sales development.
