All regions realised double-digit organic growth numbers. In addition, we successfully expanded our global network and product portfolio by acquisitions in all of our regions, most recently in Mexico and US, Japan and China. It is likely that the uncertainty in the market due to a number of global macro-economic and geopolitical concerns, will persist in the following quarters. Nevertheless we are confident that with our diversified business model, strong financial position and our diverse and entrepreneurial teams, we remain well positioned to deliver future growth."
