CEO PEKKA OJANPÄÄ: ďEconomic recession still decreases demand in the industrial sector and material flows in the construction and retail sectors and has a negative impact on the demand for the services in the Facility Services division. Thanks to operational efficiency, the Environmental Services divisionís comparable net sales and profitability improved in the first months of the year. In Industrial Services, too, we were able to grow and improve profitability during the first half of the year. In Facility Services and Renewable Energy Sources, we continued to improve the efficiency of operations in a challenging operating environment. We were able to improve the Groupís profitability year-on-year. However, due to lower demand, it will not be possible to accumulate similar net sales and operating profit during the second half of the year as we did last year.Ē GROUP NET SALES AND FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE Second quarter Lassila & Tikanojaís net sales for the second quarter decreased by 5.4% year-on-year, to EUR 159.8 million (EUR 168.9 million).

Operating profit totalled EUR 9.3 million (EUR 9.1 million) and operating profit excluding non-recurring items was EUR 9.6 million (EUR 9.1 million).

Operating profit totalled EUR 1.9 million (EUR 1.9 million) and operating profit excluding non-recurring items was EUR 2.0 million (EUR 1.9 million). Demand for process cleaning was strong. In all other service lines the net sales was slightly below the 2013 level. Operating profit excluding non-recurring items improved slightly, particularly as a result of the good profitability of hazardous waste services.

Operating profit totalled EUR 1.8 million (EUR 1.4 million) and operating profit excluding non-recurring items was EUR 1.9 million (EUR 1.4 million). Net sales increased in all of the divisionís service lines, first and foremost thanks to good demand in the first quarter. The division was able to improve the profitability of its operations as a result of efficiency improvement measures and increasing volume. Facility Services Second quarter The divisionís net sales for the second quarter were down by 6.9% to EUR 68.3 million (EUR 73.4 million). Operating profit totalled EUR 2.1 million (EUR 2.8 million). Operating profit excluding non-recurring items was EUR 2.2 million (EUR 2.9 million). The divisionís net sales declined year-on-year, due to business downsizing in Sweden and low demand for damage repair services. In addition, net sales was impacted by weaker demand for services in the cleaning and property maintenance businesses.

Property maintenance was able to improve its profitability year-on-year.

The profitability of the division was weakened by lower demand for services in the cleaning and property maintenance businesses and by the weak profitability of damage repair services. Demand for the services of the division has declined, which has decreased both the net sales and the profitability of the division. The entire division is undergoing a major reorganisation process in order to adapt operations to the changes in market conditions. This affects the profitability of business. The benefits of the process will gradually start to materialise in the second half of 2014. Renewable Energy Sources Second quarter Second quarter net sales of Renewable Energy Sources (L&T Biowatti) were down by 21.1% to EUR 10.3 million (EUR 13.0 million). Operating profit totalled EUR 0.3 million (EUR 0.1 million) and operating profit excluding non-recurring items was EUR 0.3 million (operating loss EUR 0.1 million).

January-June January-June net sales of Renewable Energy Sources (L&T Biowatti) were down by 24.9% to EUR 26.1 million (EUR 34.8 million). Operating profit totalled EUR 1.1 million (EUR 1.1 million) and operating profit excluding non-recurring items was EUR 1.1 million (EUR 0.9 million).

Net interest-bearing liabilities amounted to EUR 80.2 million, showing an increase of EUR 15.8 million from the beginning of the year and an increase of EUR 6.3 million year-on-year. Net financial expenses in January-June amounted to EUR 17.6 million (EUR 1.0 million). Net financial expenses were 5.5% (0.3%) of net sales. The increase in net financial expenses was mostly due to the EUR 16.7 million payment made under the L&T Recoil Oy guarantee commitment.

SUMMARY OF STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASES PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 4, CHAPTER 6 OF THE SECURITIES MARKET ACT In a release published on 3 March 2014, the company announced that Lassila & Tikanoja and Bioinvest SIA have signed an agreement on the sale of L&Tís business operations in Latvia to Bioinvest SIA. In a release published on 13 March 2014, the company announced that the divestment of the business operations had been completed. The total net sales of the divested business operations amount to approximately EUR 16 million, most of which is allocated to the Environmental Services division. As a result of the divestment, approximately 950 employees transferred to Bioinvest. In a release published on 21 March 2014, the company announced that it had been informed that the financiers of the EcoStream Group had called in a loan granted to L&T Recoil Oy, part of the EcoStream Group. In addition, the company announced that it had received a claim from the financing banks to pay approximately EUR 16.7 million on the basis of a loan guarantee commitment associated with L&T Recoil Oyís loans. Lassila & Tikanojaís total risk associated with the EcoStream Group, including the above guarantee commitment, is approximately EUR 23.4 million as announced earlier. Of this amount, the above guarantee commitment of approximately EUR 16.7 million has an effect on cash flow. On 30 April 2014, the company announced that it had received information according to which the District Prosecutor for Helsinki had decided to drop the charges against the companyís President and CEO Pekka OjanpÄÄ and eight other current and former members of Lassila & Tikanojaís management staff who were accused of offences related to occupational health and safety and working hours legislation. The corporate fine and claim for advantage received remained in force against the company. EVENTS AFTER THE REVIEW PERIOD On 3 July 2014, the company published a press release announcing that the Helsinki District Court has exonerated Lassila & Tikanoja from summary penal orders related to overtime work offences. The corporate fine claim presented by the prosecutor was dropped and the Finnish State was obligated to compensate the company for the legal costs of the case. According to the Court, the guidelines and monitoring systems of the company have been adequate and the safety or health of the employees had not been jeopardised. The District Court considered five of the companyís current or former supervisors to be guilty of offences related to working hours legislation. Three of them were sentenced to pay 8-15 unit fines and two were left without a sentence by reason of the triviality of the criminal act. On 1 August 2014, the company announced a change to its outlook. Lassila & Tikanojaís net sales in 2014 are expected to remain at the 2013 level or slightly below. Operating profit excluding non-recurring items is expected to remain at the 2013 level or slightly below. Previously, the company estimated that comparable net sales in 2014 would remain at the 2013 level and operating profit excluding non-recurring items would remain at the 2013 level or improve slightly. NEAR-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES Economic uncertainty may result in major changes in Environmental Servicesí secondary raw material markets and in demand for Facility Services and Industrial Services. Uncertainties associated with government subsidies for renewable fuels and with the continuity of such subsidies may affect demand for the services of Renewable Energy Sources. More detailed information on L&Tís risks and risk management is available in the Annual Report for 2013, in the Report of the Board of Directors and in the consolidated financial statements. OUTLOOK FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR Lassila & Tikanojaís net sales in 2014 are expected to remain at the 2013 level or slightly below. Operating profit excluding non-recurring items is expected to remain at the 2013 level or slightly below.
