President & CEO Markku Teräsvasara:

"The minerals processing market showed signs of recovery and our third quarter total order intake grew compared to last year. The market environment continued to be challenging for the metals refining segment. The service business suffered from weaker demand due to postponements in maintenance and modernization projects.

Our profitability and cashflow were impacted by weak performance in certain large Metals, Energy & Water projects. We are actively working on improving our performance in this segment.

We have been able to reduce fixed costs by EUR 56 million from a year ago, and the targeted EUR 70 million savings are on track. We continue cost saving actions, especially in the Metals, Energy & Water segment.

We have significant opportunities in our installed base, and we will now strongly focus on improving our service capabilities.

Outotec has developed and commercialized modular plant concepts. In the third quarter, we received three orders for modular plants with customer benefits, such as fast-track delivery and easy maintainability. We will continue to productize our solutions and services.

We expect the minerals processing market to continue gradual improvement, while metals refining is expected to remain weak. Customers are focusing on reducing their production costs and we do not expect major changes in the service market soon."
