OUTOTEC OYJ INTERIM REPORT APRIL 25, 2018 AT 9:00 AM
INTERIM REPORT JANUARY-MARCH 2018
Order intake and sales grew, cash flow and profitability improved
"Our first quarter order intake improved from the comparison period. The number of orders and also the sales funnel grew significantly compared to the first quarter last year, which reflects the improved market activity. Our profitability improved as a result of increased sales and savings in fixed costs. The cash flow was strong. The Minerals Processing segment continued to improve its profitability. The Metals, Energy & Water segment improved slightly, but remained unprofitable.
The progress in our must-win battles has been good. This is gradually strengthening our customer focus, service business, product competitiveness and delivery capabilities, enabling better profitability," summarizes President & CEO Markku Teräsvasara.
