Infineon continued to grow during the 2018 fiscal year. Revenue increased by 8 percent to €7.599 billion. Segment Result increased to €1.353 billion, corresponding to a margin of 17.8 percent. The revenue and profitability target, which we defined at the beginning of the fiscal year, has been adjusted due to currency effects and achieved in the course of the 2018 fiscal year.
We make our customers more successful with leading technology and system understanding. Here we benefit from long-term, global megatrends and develop solutions that make life easier, safer and greener. Today our traditional core competencies are in greater demand than ever. At the same time we continue to refine our growth strategy to prepare for the success of tomorrow. During the past fiscal year we have once again made strong progress in strategic projects.
At Infineon, success is not only defined by the targets that we achieve but also by the way that brought us there: Sustainability is at the core of our thinking. Listings in the Dow Jones Sustainability™ Europe Index (DJSI) and in the Dow Jones Sustainability™ World Index are both reward and motivation.
Strong growth, full order books, high capacity utilization, and a full project pipeline: The 2018 fiscal year was an important milestone in Infineon’s development. Annual revenue rose in the 2018 fiscal year by 8 percent to 7.6 billion euros. Earnings were almost 1.4 billion euros and hence the segment result margin was 17.8 percent. Our employees all over the globe have made this possible with their dedication and energy. We can be proud of what we have achieved as a team.
