Outlook

DEUTZ AG performs the head-office functions of the DEUTZ Group and is the biggest production company within the Group by some margin. Because of DEUTZ AG’s wide-ranging relationships with other Group companies and because of its size within the Group, the expectations presented in the Group outlook for 2018 are essentially the same as those for DEUTZ AG. We therefore anticipate that the revenue of DEUTZ AG will develop largely in line with the statements made for the DEUTZ Group. As the effect of the loss on the disposal of our stake in DEUTZ (Dalian) Engine Co., Ltd., Dalian, China, will not be repeated, we expect net income to rise sharply in 2019. The final instalment of the purchase consideration from the disposal of our former Cologne-Deutz site could also provide a positive one-off item. Further information can be found in the outlook for the DEUTZ Group.
