Arnoud van Tulder, Chief Executive officer, commented:
We are pleased to report a 35% storage growth in India compared to previous year. This is an immediate result from measures we implemented in India. At this point in time this considerable growth in one of our very promising markets does not compensate the significant decline in Southern Europe, predominantly Spain.
We are convinced that 2013 will be a turn-around year to regain profitable growth, as we continue to implement measures that focus on our current markets and core services.
