Vienna, October 14, 2019 – Based on preliminary data, Kapsch TrafficCom announces that in the first half of the fiscal year 2019/20, the result from operating activities (EBIT) is expected to reach approximately EUR 8 million. Adjusted for non-recurring effects, in particular relating to the termination of toll projects in Germany, the EBIT would have amounted to EUR 14 million (same period of the previous year: EUR 17.8 million).
