Encouraging business development
Business activities of the Cham Paper Group are developing favorably in 2017. The paper division is benefiting from the excellent reputation of its products in the market, where the sales department is increasingly concentrating on the sale of specialty papers which carry higher margins. At the same time, efficiency enhancements at the factories are leading to higher profitability. For the first half-year, the Group expects to achieve an operating profit of CHF 9 to 10 million (prior year period CHF 5.2 million) at a slightly lower revenue level of around CHF 100 million (prior year period CHF 103.8 million). The still small real estate division (www.papieri-cham.ch) is developing according to plan. Here, planning activities for the first construction phase are of primary importance.
The Cham Paper Group will release details about the first half year on 17 August 2017.

Cham Paper Group
The Cham Paper Group is a leading manufacturer of coated speciality papers. Surface finishing lends papers properties that generate value added for its customers. The company, which was founded in 1657, has three sites, one in Switzerland (Cham) and two in Italy (Carmignano and Condino), and a global sales network.
The decision to focus on development and sales and discontinue paper manufacturing in Switzerland has made way for a new project on the factory site in the centre of Cham. The Cham Paper Group is developing an eleven-hectare quarter there called the Papieri site.
The Cham Paper Group (stock exchange symbol: CPGN) is listed on Switzerland's SIX Swiss Exchange.
