Gurit has raised its outlook for the company`s sales and earnings performance in the first half year of 2015.

Based on a favorable year to date sales growth and the current, good demand mainly in the wind energy market, Gurit today announced that it expects results for the first half-year 2015 to come in higher than the CHF167 million generated in the first six months of 2014 in reported Swiss francs.

Due to higher demand and the ongoing operational improvements, the company says that it currently expects to be able to achieve a first half-year 2015 profit margin which exceeds the current market expectation and goes beyond the lower end of its mid-term guidance of an 8 to 10% operating profit margin for the first six months of 2015.

Gurit will publish its half-year report 2015 at the end of August.
