Overall assessment of the risk situation

Material risks have been identified and evaluated using our risk management system. Appropriate action is taken to manage these risks and, as far as possible, bring them under control. Changes in material risks are monitored regularly at Group level. Currently, the DEUTZ Group has not identified any risks that either individually or in their totality could jeopardise the continued existence of the enterprise as a going concern. Individual risk factors have changed only slightly from the previous year, meaning the overall risk situation is largely the same. Because of the precautions that have been taken and our position in the market, we are confident in our ability to successfully manage the existing risks and overcome the resulting challenges – despite conditions remaining difficult.
