INTERIM REPORT JANUARY-MARCH 2017
Significantly improved order intake
"Our first quarter order intake improved significantly from the comparison period in 2016. The improvement reflects the more positive market sentiment in the mining industry but also the low order intake in the comparison period. In addition to equipment orders in minerals processing, we got some larger plant orders in metals refining. We were also able to increase our service order intake by 13%. Our profitability improved following savings on fixed costs and higher sales volumes, but cash flow remained negative due to the backlog of mature orders.
Our new organization, with a dedicated Services business unit operational since April 1, helps us to further strengthen our capabilities in serving our customers and winning new orders. We will continue working to restore the Metals, Energy & Water segment's profitability and review our product portfolio and strategy during the forthcoming months. Although our order intake improved significantly from last year, and sentiment in the mining market has improved, the timing of large plant orders is difficult to foresee," summarizes President & CEO Markku Teräsvasara.
