Lars Corneliusson, CEO Ferronordic, comments: "The third quarter was eventful for Ferronordic. The market for our main product groups in Russia grew by around 5% and we saw continued growth in both equipment and aftermarket sales. Meanwhile, our investments into contracting services yielded results and contributed to revenue and margin growth. Total revenue grew 22% Y-o-Y to SEK 964m and our operating margin expanded 1.1pp to 11.3%. As a result, our operating profit increased 36% to SEK 109m, our best operating result to-date for a single quarter. Cash flows from operations improved and net debt decreased versus the previous period. Our expansion in Kazakhstan continues and we now operate at seven locations in the country. Meanwhile, we continue preparations for the component rebuild centre, expected to open in Q1 2020. During the quarter, we announced our intention to become dealer for Volvo and Renault Trucks in Germany. If completed, two transactions would see us take over operations at eleven locations in Germany and become responsible for a sales area corresponding to approx. 20% of the German market. Looking forward into the rest of 2019 and 2020, we believe that the market will continue to recover at about the same pace as previously in 2019, with potential for additional growth if the implementation of the so-called National Projects picks up speed.”
