The global economic environment continues to be characterized by great uncertainties due to the corona virus pandemic, especially in our main sectors of automotive, aerospace and mechanical engineering. It therefore remains difficult to predict the negative effects. For this reason, we continue to refrain from making reliable sales and earnings forecasts for the 2020 financial year.
