There is caution over the year 2016, seeing that it is not yet possible to assess what effects the low prices for copper and oil along with the downturn in the Chinese economy and the uncertainty in the American industrial market will have.

Discipline in costs and margins is the order of the day, without losing sight of the customer-oriented strategy.
