Loss per share was 3.75 euros, compared to loss of 1.35 euros a year ago.

EBIT before exceptional items as well as before VALUE 21 costs was negative 96 million, wider than last year's loss of 14 million euros.

Consolidated sales fell 46 percent to 673 million euros from 1.25 billion euros in the prior year.

VALUE 21 remains on track with a large number of initiatives implemented by the end of June. The company expects the initiatives already implemented will yield annual gross cost savings of around 450 million euros or 90 percent of the overall potential from 2022.
