Earnings Release and Financial Results Q1 FY 2019: Strong orders continue into the new fiscal year
Orders increased 13% on a comparable basis, excluding currency translation and portfolio effects, and revenue grew 2% compared to Q1 FY 2018
On a nominal basis, orders rose 12%, to €25.2 billion and revenue was up 1%, to €20.1 billion; the book-to-bill ratio was 1.25
Adjusted EBITA for Industrial Business was lower, at €2.1 billion, due mainly to a decline in Power and Gas; Industrial Business Adjusted EBITA margin at 10.2%, held back by severance charges amounting to 0.4 percentage points
Net income came in at €1.1 billion, resulting in basic EPS of €1.26, which was burdened by €0.08 from severance charges; the change year-over-year is due to two substantial positive factors outside of Industrial Business in the prior-year period: a gain from the sale of shares in OSRAM Licht AG and sharply lower income tax expenses related to U.S. tax reform
