Inaddition, call orders for the remainder of the fiscal year are at a stableand favorable level, which gives us confidence in our upcoming businessperformance for the months of November and December.Above all, we were successful in reducing the risks to our businessperformance in the fourth quarter. As discussed in the quarterly statementfor the third quarter and nine months of 2016, these risks related topotential expenses for quality issues, pressure from material prices andthe potential for delays in tool invoicing.In the meantime, these influential factors have combined to produce anoverall positive picture allowing us to raise our forecast for EBIT(earnings before interest and tax) before currency effects to a range ofEUR 21 to 22 million compared to our previous forecast of EUR 20 million.We confirm our previous revenue expectations of roughly EUR 410 million forthe 2016 fiscal year.Progress-Werk Oberkirch AG
