Review of the 2018 financial year
In spite of being a challenging year, 2018 was another very pleasing year for the Integra Group, in which we achieved great progress across all of the firms within our Group. Integra Biosciences Group showed another significant increase in growth rate and profitability. And the other firms were able to increase operating performance (some of them significantly) or at least maintain it.
A major highlight of the reporting year was undoubtedly obtaining legal acceptance for the new design plan for Integra Square in Wallisellen. This planning concept will enable us to work with our principle tenant Siemens on staged development and densification of the area. A key aspect of the development plan is the planning agreement signed with Wallisellen School for building a new primary school in the heart of the area.
