German term or phrase:Recht geben
Der Erfolg gibt dem Unternehmen Recht.
The text is talking about a very successful manufacturing company that has achieved considerable growth. The sentence is followed by the author describing that a crisis at the beginning of the nineties was overcome, growth was put back on the agenda and the company was able to win market share through product innovation.
Explanation: I believe this is a brief way to say that the strategy or path a company has decided to implement or take has proven to be a good decision, considering the company has experienced growth/success.
