Results of operations

We increased our sales and earnings in 2012. Sales rose by 7.1% to €78,729 million. This development was primarily attributable to good business development in the Agricultural Solutions segment as well as to higher sales volumes in the Oil & Gas segment. Sales were additionally boosted by positive currency effects.
