OUTOTEC OYJ HALF YEAR FINANCIAL REPORT JULY 27, 2017 AT 9:00 AM
HALF YEAR FINANCIAL REPORT 2017
Good development in Minerals Processing, recovery of Metals, Energy & Water pending
"Our half year order intake improved significantly from last year, reflecting a more positive market sentiment in the mining industry. Our Minerals Processing segment, whose market activity started to improve in the second quarter last year, continued to develop well and its profitability improved.
During the reporting period, our order intake increased by 34% from last year. Service order intake was up by 15% mainly due to an increase in spare parts and shutdown services. Our sales increased by 6%; the growth came from process equipment orders in Minerals Processing. Increased sales improved our adjusted EBIT to EUR 3.5 million, but the result was weakened by lower gross margin. This was a result of sales mix, cost overruns in some project deliveries, as well as decreased sales in Metals, Energy & Water.
In the second quarter, our order intake and sales improved significantly in Minerals Processing, which together with earlier achieved cost savings more than doubled the segment's adjusted EBIT margin year-on-year from 4.1% to 8.8%. In Metals, Energy & Water, order intake, sales and adjusted EBIT declined in the second quarter. We continue actions to make this segment profitable again. The development in our new service organization was encouraging, with a 17% increase in order intake during the second quarter mainly coming from growth in spare parts and shutdown services. We will continue to further strengthen our capabilities in serving our customers and our large installed base.
During the second half of the year, market continues to offer attractive opportunities. The timing of large plant orders, however, is difficult to foresee", summarizes President & CEO Markku Teräsvasara.
