Metso Outotec publishes positive profit warning
Metso Outotec Corporation, Insider information, on July 27, 2020, at 8:30 a.m. EEST
Metso Outotec publishes preliminary information on its second-quarter results, which according to the information available to the company, seem to be better than market expectations. The good development during the second quarter has resulted from the mining industry being relatively less affected by Covid-19, healthy product margins and delivery capabilities as well as rapid and successful cost saving actions. These had a positive impact to sales and adjusted EBITA. Operating profit (EBIT), however, has been affected by cost adjustments related to the completion of Metso’s partial demerger and the merger of Metso’s Minerals business and Outotec.
Key figures for Metso Outotec are presented separately for Metso Minerals and Outotec as well as combined for illustrative purposes.
Metso Outotec will publish its half-year report on Wednesday, August 5, 2020. Prior to that, the company will not provide additional information on its financial results for the period.
