Zeiss was able to maintain the high level of incoming orders and revenue in the first half of the new fiscal year with solid growth dynamics across all four four segments. The Zeiss Group’s stable, double-digit growth continued across all four Zeiss segments in the first half of fiscal year 2022/23 (ended 31 March 2023). Half-year revenue reached 4,836 million euros (up 18% on prior year) – at 917 million euros, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) was also above the good level of the prior year (up 181 million euros on prior year). Expenditure on research and development increased again and reached 14.5% (of revenue), and the number of employees increased by 6% to 41,259 globally.
