The challenging environment in the construction industry and the integration of the acquired Sanitec business shaped the Geberit Group's results in the 2015 financial year. Despite this, starting from a very high level, the company managed to achieve a good overall result. The majority of markets and regions achieved growth in sales and gained market shares. The results, adjusted for various special effects in connection with the Sanitec acquisition, were positively influenced by beneficial volume and product mix effects as well as lower raw material prices. These were countered mainly by the negative impact of the dilution of margins due to the integration of Sanitec and the effects of the currency rebate in Switzerland. With these results, the Group further consolidated its position as the leading supplier of sanitary products.
