In 2008 the group will continue its growth path. Sales will increase from 37 million Euros (31.12.2007) to approximately 38 million Euros. Silicon Sensor Group will focus on the completion of the new sensor fabrication building in Berlin. Due to this one-time-effects caused by the construction of the new sensor production site, and the time lag for orders in the packaging business, the board of directors expect an EBIT, which is nearly the same as in year 2007. To reach company´s goals in 2008 actions are initiated to intensify sales and decrease costs. Starting with the business year 2009 growth rate will increase further.
