President & CEO Markku Teräsvasara:

"In 2016, our two business segments were in different phases. The order intake in the Minerals Processing segment started to increase from the second quarter, which together with the achieved cost savings, contributed to the segment's good profitability. The segment ended the year with a solid order backlog, and the market is expected to continue to bring new opportunities. The Metals, Energy & Water segment's order intake remained weak. However, we saw positive signs in the market towards the end of the year. Due to the segment's lower order backlog, we have initiated further cost saving actions. Increased risk provisions especially in one large project significantly weakened the segment's result.

In services, the recurring spare parts and technical maintenance orders grew slightly from 2015, and the growth accelerated towards the end of the year. Large shutdown service and new operation & maintenance contracts declined from the comparison period. The new Services business unit, which will start operations in April, will prioritize and develop our offering, as well as strengthen our customer service. Our strong global installed base brings us attractive service business opportunities.

We expect our profitability to improve due to the pick up in the Minerals Processing segment as well as our cost-saving actions. Securing large orders will, in addition to cost savings action, remain crucial to stabilize the Metals, Energy & Water segment and to achieve sales growth in this segment.

The sentiment in the mining industry has improved. However, the global economical and political environment remains uncertain."
