CEO’s comments

“Orders received in the first quarter amounted to SEK 739 million, corresponding to an organic growth of -4.7%. It is primarily the deferment of major projects in the Americas and a slower than anticipated start in some EMEA countries that have contributed to this decrease.

Development in the Americas shows a positive sales trend for products and smaller systems while we booked fewer larger projects than expected in the first quarter. The number of tendered projects, however, remains at a good level.

The order intake in APAC developed strongly the first quarter with all countries contributing positively. The incentives for investments in environmental improving equipment remain, albeit in the short term, we see a gap between authorities’ incentive to mitigate environmental issues and actual investments made in the industry. We are willing to invest in Asia but can conclude that profitability in our business segments is not satisfactory. We will, in addition to already taken actions, further evaluate our way of working in the region and adapt our offering according to market conditions.

Cash flow in the quarter has improved compared to same period last year. Mainly due to lower levels of working capital."
