Order Intake
Order intake in the third quarter of 2018 amounted to € 693.5 million (previous year: € 704.4 million). As at 30 September, order intake rose by 9% to € 2,270.6 million (previous year: € 2,088.6 million). Domestic orders were € 681.9 million (+7%; previous year: € 639.3 million). International orders grew by 10% to € 1,588.7 million (previous year: € 1,449.3 million). International orders accounted for 70% of all orders (previous year: 69%).

Sales Revenues
Sales revenues increased in the third quarter by 17% to € 642.6 million (previous year: € 548.2 million). As at 30 September, sales revenues were up 12% at € 1,857.7 million (previous year: € 1,656.2 million). The export share was 69% as in the previous year.

Order Backlog
On 30 September 2018 the order backlog amounted to € 1,705.8 million (31 Dec. 2017: € 1,309.1 million). The high order backlog and the very high capacity utilization at the production plants are causing long delivery times at present. We are further counteracting this development with stronger flexibility and sound business relationships with our partners and suppliers. In addition, we are investing further into the expansion of our production capacities in Poland and Pfronten with new assembly and logistics areas as well as with cutting-edge technology and solution centers.
