ABSTRACT
This article states that after the takeover of BOC and even after European Union (EU)-mandated divestments, the Linde Group has emerged on the top of the industrial gases market as of 2007. Earnings before interest, tax and depreciation (EBITDA) more than doubled with benefits from the sale of Linde's material handling subsidiary, Kion. Without BOC, Linde Gas' sales rose by 8.3% and EBITDA by 11%. Turnover of Linde Engineering increased by 12.3%.
