Management perspective

”Emerson’s first quarter performance exceeded expectations in key financial indicators, including basic sales, operational leverage, and adjusted earnings per share. Our strong start to the year, sustained focus on operational execution, and a focus on flexible terminal and hybrid market demand have injected confidence into our 2024 expectations.
Enai, also known as the testing and measurement business, achieved strong sales and profit margins at the beginning of this fiscal year. We have accelerated our technology diversification collaboration plan in testing and measurement, and continue to create value for shareholders
