Siemens Industrial Services and Solutions (I&S) specializes in developing systems solutions for customers, who include some of the world's largest corporations and municipalities. I&S contributed Group profit of US$162 million in fiscal 2005, up 46% from US$111 million a year earlier. Profit growth was due primarily to a full-year contribution from the Group's water systems business, acquired in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004, backed by Group-wide earnings improvements. Sales climbed 26% for the year, to US$6.306 billion, including the water systems business and revenues from the portion of the VA Tech acquisition allocated to I&S. The acquisitions also contributed strongly to the year's 31% growth in orders, which reached US$6.652 billion. Effective with the beginning of fiscal 2006, I&S includes Siemens' Postal Automation and Airport Logistics divisions, which were formerly part of L&A.
The fourth quarter at I&S followed the pattern of the full year. Group profit rose to US$60.84 million from US$40.94 million a year earlier on broad-based earnings improvement, which more than offset amortization effects related to VA Tech. Acquisitions drove 42% growth in fourth-quarter sales and 39% growth in fourth-quarter orders.
