The Healthcare Service Division increased sales by 106.1 % and reached KEUR 4,032 following KEUR 1,956 (1st half-year 2012). This includes sales of ASS.TEC GmbH acquired in 2012, which were consolidated for the first time.

The operative cash flow is lower than in the previous year at KEUR 3,583 (previous year: KEUR 5,545). The reduction of trade accounts payables of approx. EUR 1.8 million is the main reason for the decrease.

Dividends in the amount of KEUR 1,657 (previous year: 1,428) have been paid in 2013. The equity capital rate was 69%.
