Between October and June, EBIT pre-PPA, restructuring and integration costs reached €478 million and the EBIT margin was 7.4%.

Commercial activity remained strong in the third quarter of fiscal year 2018. During the period, the order backlog reached a new peak at €23,226 million (+14%), increasing visibility of future growth. The backlog was boosted by €3,292 million in firm orders. Onshore wind order intake during the third quarter was 1,660 MW, driven by diversified order entry (Brazil, Spain, South Africa, Ireland and USA). Offshore order intake marked a peak with 1,368 MW in firm orders, due to the agreement to supply 165 turbines to Hornsea II and 120 MW to the first offshore wind power plant in Taiwan.
