BayWa AG (BYWG: Quote) reported Thursday an increase in earning before interest and taxes or EBIT for full year 2011, helped by about 21 percent growth in revenues. The company is confident of the current year and plans to achieve profit in a similar dimension in 2012.

All three segments contributed to the success of the year 2011. Agriculture, Energy and Building Materials all exceeded their year-earlier EBIT, the company noted.

Agriculture segment, which is the driver of the outstanding overall result of the company, achieved revenues of 4.3 billion euros, up more than 21 percent from last year and EBIT climbed by around 22 percent to 78 million euros.
