First quarter 2009
Operations targeted at the healthcare market have historically shown limited sensitivity to economic fluctuations. Due to the intensity of the prevailing recession, particularly in terms of the US market, Getinge is lowering its growth ambitions for the year. Despite the challenges, we expect continued favourable growth for the year of about 15% before taxes.
