CEO’s comments

“Nederman’s core business with products and services had a solid performance during the quarter within both EMEA and the USA. It was particularly pleasing to note the strong recovery in Europe in September after weak demand in June and July in the wake of the UK’s decision to leave the EU. The European market is judged now to be considerably more stable than right after the UK referendum.

Our greatest challenge is the uncertainty around sales of major projects in the USA and China. Demand in the USA has been affected by the slowdown in industrial production in the last twelve months. A further factor that is deemed to have an effect on some investment decisions is the uncertainty associated with the forthcoming presidential election.

In China, we are seeing lower economic activity which limits the number of major investments and the economic development in the country is difficult to assess at the moment.

In the quarter, we completed the last measures relating to cost and structural adjustments in Thailand and Australia as planned. In the USA, the business for shock-absorbing cabinets for electronic equipment was phased out as planned and previously announced during the quarter.

The Group’s operating profit in the quarter was satisfactory. Cash flow from operating activities has improved in comparison with the same period last year.”

Sven Kristensson, CEO
