Revenue for the first half decreased 4.7 percent to 2.598 billion. On a like-for-like basis, revenue was up 2 percent, resulting from favorable business levels in most of the Group's key markets- Northern, Central and Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific, Americas and the Mediterranean, Middle East, Africa.

The Group said it expects 2016 EBIT to come within a broad range of between 670 million euros and 720 million euros.
