Leica's financial results for the 1st quarter of fiscal year 2010/2011 are out:

"Leica Camera Group has closed the first quarter with sales amounting to € 56,176,000 (previous year: € 29,096,000). The net result of the Group for the reporting period has improved by € 16,249,000 to a net income of € 9,426,000 (previous year: net loss of € 6,823,000), due, inter alia, to higher contribution margins."
