German Feb. Industrial Output Declines More Than Expected

4/5/2012 6:19 AM ET

Germany's industrial production declined more than expected in February, data from the Federal Ministry of Economy and Technology showed Thursday.

Industrial output dropped 1.3 percent in February from a month ago, offsetting January's 1.2 percent growth. Economists had expected a 0.5 percent decrease.

On a yearly basis, industrial production slipped unexpectedly by an adjusted 1 percent, reversing a 1.5 percent rise in January. The consensus forecast called for an increase of 0.5 percent.

Meanwhile, unadjusted industrial output grew 1.2 percent annually, slower than the 4.6 percent increase in January.
