Report on expected Developments

Schaeffler Group outlook

The Schaeffler Group expects its revenue to grow by 4 to 5 % excluding the impact of currency translation in 2017. This outlook is based on the assumption that global automobile production will expand by approximately 1.5% and worldwide industrial production will grow slightly.

The Schaeffler Group expects its Automotive division to continue to grow faster than global automobile production of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles in 2017. Given the expanding global fleet of passenger vehicles, the Aftermarket business will also likely continue to grow.

In the Industrial division, sluggish order intake in the fourth quarter of 2016 and the still strained economic environment in certain sectors suggest 2017 revenue levels on par with 2016.

Based on these considerations, the company expects to generate an EBIT margin before special items of 12 to 13 % in 2016.

The Schaeffler Group expects approximately EUR 600 m in free cash flow for 2017.
