President and CEO Kaj Hagros:

“Net sales in the first nine months of 2011 totalled EUR 46.2 million, which is virtually the same as in the same period in the previous year (EUR 46.7 million). However, third quarter net sales were 29% higher than in the corresponding period in 2010. After a weak first quarter in 2011, the second and third quarters were both improved periods and resulted positive adjusted result. Sales in Latin America, Middle East and Africa, and Europe were similar to that recorded in 2010, but the Asia and Pacific region produced a weaker result. Since the end of the third quarter the company has reorganized, with the aim of increasing productivity and profitability and providing higher quality customer service in 2012. The order book has recovered since the end of 2010. The strained economic situation has so far not had a noticeable impact on operators’ investment plans, which are critical for Tecnotree. Net sales and the adjusted operating result for 2011 are estimated to be at the same level as in 2010 or better than this.”

Prospects in 2011

The company is currently carrying out its strategy based on an expanded product range. Tecnotree is turning into an advanced supplier of telecommunications system solutions, operating in a broad sector. The company is anticipating new growth based on the new range of products and solutions that it announced on 14 February 2011.

Net sales and the adjusted operating result are expected to match or exceed the 2010 figures. Quarterly variations will be considerable.

The adjusted operating result is the operating result before capitalisation of development costs, amortization of these and one-time costs.
