CEO Ilkka Raskinen:
”This was now the fourth quarter in succession when we improved our operating profit from the corresponding period in the previous year. Demand for our new products has remained strong, and the order book in the MEA area grew strongly to EUR 22.4 million compared to EUR 14.4 million in the previous year. The major projects in Latin America are progressing on schedule, and new business in this region is increasingly becoming product and service business. Cash flow management is still a priority for the year.”
