EBITA was down 27%, corresponding to a margin of 7.8%, while EBIT decreased 40% to DKK245 million. Group CEO Thomas Schulz commented: "With the 3rd quarter report published today, we showed that, despite a tough market environment, we delivered a solid performance, and we secured a strong order intake.”
Revenue for the year us expected to fall in the range of DKK19 – 21 billion with an EBITA margin of 7.5 – 8.5%.
Mr Schulz added: “The decision to divest bulk material handling and the transfer of the operation & maintenance business from Customer Services to the Cement Division, is one more step in preparing FLSmidth for the future."
