CEO’s comments
“Orders grew organically by 5.5% in Q4, while sequential developments were strong between Q3 and Q4. Profit margins continued to improve however despite the lower sales figures compared with the same period last year. EFT, which was recently acquired, reported healthy growth over the quarter, especially in terms of profitability levels, where a favourable mix positively affected the quarter’s earnings.
To further strengthen our competitive edge and optimise our supply chain we announced in January 2013 that we have now entered negotiations to discontinue manufacturing at the Group’s plant in Denmark and intend moving manufacturing to the Group’s plants in Poland and Germany.”
