Our goal is to generate profitable growth. The Company's strategy and the associated strategic measures are geared toward this goal. In pursuing this objective, we are looking to capitalize on the following long-term trends:
- Advancing digitalization within the retail banking and retail industries presents us with the opportunity to shape specific change processes relating to our customers' business operations, particularly in the innovative-driven industrialized markets. This can be achieved by expanding our Software and Automation business.
- The demographic and economic significance of the emerging markets will continue to grow well into the future. We want to seize the growth opportunities associated with this trend, regardless of the fact that prevailing market conditions currently pose a challenge to business dealings in the BRIC countries.
