ESSEN, Germany (Reuters) – Thyssenkrupp (TKAG.DE) on Wednesday reported a drop in operating margins at its car parts and elevator divisions, the core of a planned capital goods spin-off that has failed to provide a jolt to its tanking share price.
The group also provided an outlook for the ongoing financial year 2018/19, expecting adjusted operating profit from continuing operations, which excludes its European steel business, to rise by at least 42 percent to more than 1 billion euros (889.5 million pounds).
