Markets have become globalized, advances are being made in all types of technologies, and we have turned into an information-based society. The environment in which we are active is constantly changing, and the pace of these changes are accelerating at breathtaking speed. We have entered an age in which catching up is no longer a viable option. It is up to us to forge new paths into the future. In light of this, it is our intention to actively seize all opportunities that these changes provide. Our stance of constantly providing our customers with new levels of value remains unchanged. In order to ensure this, we will continue to develop new concepts and flexible ways of thinking and acting at all times.
