Earnings improved during the quarter – action programs according to plan Third quarter sales were 2% above the year-ago period while operating earnings rose slightly to
SEK 11 million. The positive trend was due primarily to the Electronics operating segment, which continued to perform well due to high capacity utilization at most of its units. As a result, we were able to balance the sharp, ongoing decline within Machining, where the effort to adapt operations to lower volumes for the Defense market area accelerated. Nevertheless, the inflow of new non-defense customers was satisfactory. The improvement within Systems Integration was largely attributable to our attractive range of engineering services and our ability to deliver technically advanced products. Our offering for the Norwegian oil and gas market has also been well received during the quarter.
