"During the first six months of the year we had to cope with some unexpected headwinds, like currencies and weak consumption, which will affect also the second half of 2013. On one side, this means that the Group's expansion targets and the Braun integration will require even greater efforts, while on the other side it makes the current results very remarkable".
