GILDEMEISTER cooperates with Public Prosecutor’s Office
Bielefeld. At GILDEMEISTER Aktiengesellschaft and subsidiaries yesterday, investigations were carried out by the Public Prosecutor’s Office. The inquiries were based on an initial suspicion of tax evasion or the aiding and abetting of this for commission payments abroad and are directed against individual persons and unknown persons. GILDEMEISTER has a great interest in a comprehensive clarification of the occurrences and will most emphatically support the Public Prosecutor’s Office in the inquiries. The Board of Directors assumes that it will be possible to clarify the allegations and that these will prove to be unfounded.
GILDEMEISTER has also continued its growth curve in the fourth quarter of 2007. Due to the good course of business, the technology Group will achieve the best financial year so far in 137 years. In the financial year 2008, the goal is to continue this positive development. The growth is to proceed organically and be significantly driven by its own innovation. In addition, GILDEMEISTER will continue to extend its activities in the renewable or regenerative energies sector. GILDEMEISTER will publish the provisional figures for the financial year 2007 on 12 February 2008.
