CEO’s comments
”The quarter has been challenging in terms of orders received which totalled SEK 727 million, corresponding to an organic growth of -10.3 %. The low orders received is primarily due to the time lag in major projects in North America, which resulted in no major orders booked in this market during the quarter. The number of projects tendered for in North America is still at a good level, but it is difficult to predict when these projects will be taken forward.

APAC has shown a continued positive trend in orders received during the quarter, above all in China. We are prepared to invest in Asia but recognise at the same time that profitability in the business segment is not satisfactory. As stated previously, we are therefore implementing measures to further review our operations in the region and to adapt our offering to a greater extent to the market conditions. These measures have already given rise to some improvement during the quarter.

Within the EMEA region, core business continued well. Adjusted for the order received for an aluminium smelter in the UK during Q2 2015, order value SEK 30 million, then the order book has grown organically by around 6%, which is pleasing. In addition, profitability continued to be boosted in the EMEA region, which makes this the most profitable quarter ever and this is largely related to the efficiency programmes that have been carried out.

Profitability in the group has continued to develop positively during the quarter driven by better volume and good development of gross margins. Cash flow from operations during the second quarter of the year has also been satisfactory.”
