Trend analysis

Straumann has outperformed its main peers over the five-year period (see chart) and achieved average growth of 4% over this period (in local currencies), 3.5% of it organic. In the last three years, however, sales and profits have been hurt by the soft market environment and strong negative currency effects. Changes in the market have also resulted in a one-time impairment of assets that has reduced the reported earnings of Straumann. In view of its solid balance sheet and despite the prolonged economic crisis in its most important region, Europe, Straumann has deliberately pursued an expansionary investment policy, increasing its presence in growth markets like China, Brazil and the USA, expanding its business divisions and setting up three dedicated sales units.
