The FINANCIAL -- On a comparable basis, excluding currency translation and portfolio effects, orders rose 21% and revenue was level with the prior-year period

On a nominal basis, orders climbed 16% to €22.8 billion driven by a higher volume from large orders, while revenue came in at €20.5 billion, 4% lower than the prior-year quarter due primarily to currency translation effects; the book-to-bill ratio was 1.11

Industrial Business profit was up 2% at €2.2 billion and Industrial Business profit margin was 10.7%; excellent performance by Digital Factory and improvements in many Divisions partly offset by a sharp decrease in profit and profitability at Power and Gas

Net income of €1.2 billion was held back by substantially higher income tax rate compared to Q3 FY 2017, which also benefited from positive effects in Centrally managed portfolio activities; basic earnings per share (EPS) of €1.36 compared to €1.67 in Q3 FY 2017
