Comments by Henrik Henriksson, President and CEO:

“Scania’s net sales rose to a record level of nearly SEK 104 billion . Total deliveries of trucks and buses and coaches reached all-time high levels. Service revenue amounted to a record of almost SEK 22 billion, an increase of 5 percent (7 percent in local currency). T he company’s operational performance was strong. Higher vehicle volume in Europe and higher service volume impacted earnings positively but this was partly offset by negative currency rate effects, lower deliveries in Latin America (mainly related to Brazil), and by the high cost of investments related to Scania’s new truck generation. Scania’s position in the European market remains strong with a market share of 16.5 percent. The replacement need and economic situation in Europe continues to have a positive impact on demand for trucks. Order bookings in Latin America remain at a low level, mainly due to the very uncertain situation in Brazil. In Eurasia, order bookings increased somewhat and Russia appears to have bottomed out. Demand for buses and coaches remains at a high level in Europe. In Engines, demand for industrial and marine engines is good, while remaining weak on the power generation side . The success of the new generation of Scania trucks has been immediate and the truck has outperformed the competition in all trade press tests it has entered. Nearly all aspects have been praised – the powertrain, performance, comfort, braking capacity, visibility and steering. Combined with Scania Maintenance with Flexible Plans, our new tailor-made service enabled by continual monitoring of connected vehicles’ operating data, customer earning potential is enhanced. When every truck receives exactly the maintenance it needs, the customer enjoys maximum vehicle uptime.“
