Outlook for 2007

 The consolidated operating result is expected to be significantly better than the previous year’s result, but in the light of developments in 2006 and a slight delay to the Gunnebo One Company integration project it is estimated that it will not be possible to achieve the company’s long-term financial targets in full during the 2007 financial year.
