Basler AG, a manufacturer of industrial cameras, has released financial figures for the first half-year of 2013.

The group's sales of €32.2 million were 28 per cent above the previous year's value of €25.2 million. The gross margin improved by almost six per cent to 50.6 per cent (previous year: 44.8 per cent). The group's earnings before taxes (EBT) rose by 77 per cent to €3.9 million (previous year: €2.2 million). The pre-tax return amounted to 12 per cent (previous year: 9 per cent).

'The robust incoming orders, the smooth introduction into the market of important new products, and the progress made in sales in markets of great significance to us, give us the confidence to assume that we will succeed in exceeding the previous forecast for 2013, despite an unchanged moderate economic environment,' said CEO Dietmar Ley.
