Sulzer still expects to reach the business volume and profitability goals set for 2001. Any medium-term effects on Sulzer of the economic downswing trends are not clear at the present time; however, the corporate business portfolio is now more recession-resistant than prior to restructuring. However, there may be some delay in reaching medium-term goals if the economic situation does not improve next year.
