The Basler group's sales increased in fiscal year 2012 by 1 per cent to €55.9 million (previous year: €55.1 million). The gross profit margin increased to 48.1  per cent from 44.3  per cent in the previous year.

Earnings before taxes amounted to €5.6 million (previous year: €5.6 million). The pre-tax return is 10 per cent (previous year: 10.2  per cent). For the whole of 2012, Basler achieved what it describes as one of the best results in the company's history.

In 2013 the Basler group expects the sales revenues to increase from €60 million to €63 million. Due to what the company calls attractive growth opportunities in the industrial camera market, investments in future sales growth are expected to be continued. As far as earnings are concerned, Basler is assuming a pre-tax return between 8  and 10  per cent, depending on the sales trend.
