Rockwell Automation hopes for 2nd half-year 2016

Rockwell Automation managed to realize a turnover of USD 2,866.9 m (EUR 2,528.7 m) in the first half-year 2016 (10/2015-3/2016), which is an 8.3% minus compared with the same period last year.

The decline is divided equally between the two divisions (Architecture & Software and Control Products & Solutions).

Net profits fell from USD 420.2 m (EUR 370.6 m) to USD 353.5 m (EUR 311.8 m), that is by 15.8%.

Approx. 55.5% of the turnover is generated in the United States and 19% in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East, Africa).

In mid-April Blake D.Moret was appointed as the new chairman of the board, replacing the long-serving Keith D. Nosbusch, who had occupied this position since 2004 and who will continue as president of the supervisory board.
