Difficult start to first half-year of 2010 for the Bachem Group

August 20, 2010
  • Postponed assignments and orders slow down the start to the year and send sales down 17.1% in local currencies during the first half of 2010
  • Positive sales trend in the course of the year with 25% sales increase for second quarter compared with the first three months of 2010
  • The sales decline as well as the staff and infrastructure costs required for sustainable success lead to a temporary fall in EBIT (5.8 million CHF, -78.7%) and EBIT-margin (7.9%)
  • Net income thanks to proceeds from sale of stake in Polyphor at 18.8 million CHF
  • With a marked increase in sales and reduced costs, a substantially higher operating income margin is expected for the second semester


At Bachem, we believe that our employees make the difference. Representing our corporate culture of passion and commitment, they are the foundation of our success. We therefore strive to attract, retain, and develop highly motivated, well-qualified individuals.
