Fourth quarter and Year-end report 2012
“Full-year 2012 was a good 12 months for Trelleborg. In a turbulent economic climate, we improved our geographic balance and portfolio of operations and strengthened our positions. During the year, we formed the joint venture TrelleborgVibracoustic, which is of major strategic significance.
It is a demonstration of our strength that we are able to report satisfactory sales, operating profit and operating margin, despite the period that were underpinned by the considerable unrest prevailing in the global economy in the fourth quarter. In addition, cash flow developed positively as a result of efficient management of working capital.
We are seeing signs that the market trend is beginning to stabilize, albeit uncertainty remains. We are carefully monitoring economic developments and have a solid financial base and continued high readiness to manage a volatile market,” says President and CEO Peter Nilsson.
