Lars Corneliusson, CEO Ferronordic, comments: "The third quarter was another very strong quarter for Ferronordic. Revenue was close to all time high for a single quarter and earnings were higher than ever. Operating profit reached SEK 80m which was 17% higher than the second quarter this year – our previously best quarter in terms of earnings. During the quarter we saw a very positive growth in the aftermarket, largely thanks to our investments in digitalized sales support which is now giving higher results. In total the aftermarket sales grew by as much as 24%. We also continue to optimize the efficiency of our organization. Thanks to our continuous efforts we managed, one again, to reduce our selling and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue from 11.0% in the third quarter last year to 9.9% in this quarter. We are also happy that our contracting services business continues to develop and expand. Sales are increasing and we are learning to run projects with higher profitability. The increased sales and profitability in aftermarket and contracting services had a very positive impact on our overall profitability during for the quarter. Gross margin and operating margin for the quarter increased to 20.3% and 10.1%, respectively. As regards the long- and medium term development of the Russian equipment market, we remain optimistic, especially given the existing indications of significantly increased infrastructure spending.
