  CEO’s comments

“Nedermans product, service and smaller solution sales, also named core business, had a solid performance during the quarter within both the EMEA and the Americas with an organic growth in incoming orders of 10.5% and 17.3% respectively. Total incoming orders in the quarter increased by SEK 98m, corresponding to an organic growth of 9.1%. Incoming orders for the full year totalled 2,992.3m (3,171.8), which organically is a decrease of 6.7%.


The European market is deemed to be stable and is characterised by cautious optimism. In the Americas, the market situation continues to be characterised by great uncertainty with prolonged decision-making processes, although there are positive undertones in the USA. The uncertain situation in the region is expected though to continue for several quarters to come.

Our greatest challenge continues to be the uncertainty around sale of major projects in the USA and China. Demand in the USA has been affected by the downturn in industrial production in the last twelve months. In China, we see lower economic activity which limits the number of major investments and the economic development in the country is difficult to assess at the moment. Yet in the long-term, Nederman foresees future business opportunities in China due to increased environmental awareness.

In the APAC region, we completed the final measures relating to cost and structural adjustments in Thailand and Australia. The market situation in Thailand continues to be difficult, but in Australia our measures have had a very positive effect on profitability in this market.

The Group’s operating profit in the quarter was satisfactory. Cash flow from operating activities was improved for the full year.”
