R&M: Shimmers of Light on the Horizon

Swiss cabling specialist Reichle & De-Massari AG (R&M) reported sales of CHF 192 million in fiscal year 2009 (EUR 130 million). That is 22 percent less than in 2008. "At the start of 2009, the decline in sales was not foreseeable in the magnitude in which it came. This drop reflects the tough market environment," CEO Martin Reichle said. "We did manage to offset part of the decline in the final quarter. I see light on the horizon," Martin Reichle added. EBIT for 2009 amounted to 6 percent. "That is a satisfactory result, especially because we con-sciously dispensed with far-reaching cost cutting and continued unabated with strategically important projects. We knew we were going to break even for quite some time but actually ended up with a small profit," Martin Reichle noted.

With low-exergy building services safe up to 30 percent energy
