COMMENTS BY LARS CORNELIUSSON, CEO AND PRESIDENT:
- The Russian market for new construction equipment continued to recover during the quarter, although at a more moderate pace than during the first half of the year. This was expected given that the recovery started already in the third quarter 2016. Nevertheless, during the quarter and the first nine months, the total market for our product range was still up as much as approximately 70% and 84% respectively, compared to the same periods last year.
- As the market continued to recover we continued to increase our revenue. Consequently, the revenue during the quarter was more than 50% higher than during the same period last year. Also our operating profit and earnings per ordinary share continued to increase, despite the fact that profitability in Q3 2016 was very strong. The operating margin remains in line with our financial objectives.
- Meanwhile we continued to develop our business and implement our strategy. As mentioned in the Q2 report, in August we were appointed distributor for Mecalac backhoe loaders in all of Russia. The product, which comes with both equal- and unequal-sized wheels, will be a great complement to our other product offering.
- Last but not least I wish to express my gratitude for the interest shown in our company during the recently completed listing of our ordinary shares on Nasdaq Stockholm, both from preference shareholders to convert preference shares to ordinary shares, as well as from investors to acquire ordinary shares. The conversion and the issue of new ordinary shares strengthen our balance sheet further and provide even better possibilities to realize our strategy and capture the existing growth opportunities.
