helmi 13, 2020

”Platform for the future strengthened in 2019”


Fourth Quarter 2019

  • Market demand mixed with areas of good growth. Order intake and net sales increased by 6% respective 5% and were flat organically, on the back of a strong fourth quarter 2018
  • Order intake mainly driven by larger order in Data Centers US, whereas the industrial segment saw weaker demand. Business area FoodTech grew in the US and Asia
  • Net sales increased in business area AirTech, where as business area FoodTech net sales declined despite good growth in Asia
  • Adjusted EBITA margin was slightly lower compared to last year as a result of changed product mix and temporarily higher labor costs related to growth in certain areas

January-December 2019

  • Stable demand, with strong order intake in Data Centers US and Services within business area AirTech
  • Order intake in AirTech was offset by lower order intake in business area FoodTech. They were impacted by a weak swine market due to the African Swine Fever (ASF) and uncertainties about effects from trade tariffs
  • Net sales grew driven by good growth in Data Centers US, Mist Elimination and Services in AirTech, offset by a decrease in FoodTech
  • Adjusted EBITA increased 20% driven primarily by cost savings from the Munters Full Potential (FPP) program. During 2019 cost savings well in line with the estimated yearly run-rate of SEKm 210 from the FPP program were achieved
  • The Board of Directors propose no dividend to be paid for 2019
