reinvested in research and development

25% of sales which will [are scheduled to] be reinvested in research and development


BTW, "wieder reinvestiert" is a bit doppelt gemoppelt...

25% of turnover, which will be reinvested once more


Explanation:
the two changes from other suggestions are
a) "turnover" which is equivalent to sales and just a matter of preference.
b) wieder = "once more", which you may want to include.

the 25 % of turnover, which will be reinvested in ...


Explanation:
I'm trying to put more emphasis on the 25 %, but the problem is the Umsatz/turnover.
You can only invest profits, turnover does not garantee profits.

Not in my little world, but maybe in the Money Market, but I doubt that Research and Development are ready for a gamble.

Trying to help.
