• Revenue rose 8% compared to Q3 FY 2016, to €21.4 billion, including a strong performance by short-cycle businesses
  • Orders came in 6% lower, at €19.8 billion, due to sharply lower volume from large orders at Power and Gas and at Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, the business resulting from the merger of Siemens’ wind power business with Gamesa Corporación Tecnológica S.A. (Gamesa) beginning with Q3 FY 2017; the book-to-bill ratio for Siemens overall was 0.93
  • On a comparable basis, excluding currency translation and portfolio effects, revenue rose 3% and orders were 9% lower
  • Profit Industrial Business rose 3% to €2.3 billion; as expected, negative merger and acquisition effects related to Gamesa and Mentor Graphics Corporation (Mentor Graphics) reduced Industrial Business profit margin to 10.4%
  • Net income rose 7%, to €1.5 billion; basic earnings per share (EPS) of €1.74, up from €1.64 in Q3 FY 2016 despite negative merger and acquisition effects

“Our global team delivered a solid quarter with revenue up 8% and net income growing by 7%. Our digital enterprise business impressively underscored its leading position in the market. We are fully on track with Vision 2020 and for another strong year.”
