1Q12 was a positive quarter for Cavotec with good levels of activity throughout all our Market Units. Ports & Maritime continued to show very strong momentum throughout the quarter, with all MU’s experiencing positive growth compared to 1Q11. Our innovations played a significant role in achieving these results, with our AMP systems booking especially positive results in 1Q12. I’m also pleased to see the very encouraging Order Intake in the quarter for the Airports and Mining & Tunnelling Market Units.
One of our main goals for 2012 is to strengthen the level of profitability compared to 2011. Already in 1Q I can report that we are well on track to achieve this goal.
