Interim result for January to June 2013 (unaudited)
Stable performance despite challenging market conditions
Unchanged outlook for 2013
Due to economic uncertainty and low growth in Europe our operating environment remains challenging. Thanks to continuous focus on free cash-flow and cost efficiency, we expect a stable financial performance and reduced debt compared to the previous year.
Hans Sohlström, President and CEO of Rettig Group:
“Our performance during the first half of this year was stable and according to our expectations. Thanks to strong focus on cash flow and debt reduction, our free cash flow was about 25 MEUR higher and our net debt about 39 MEUR lower compared to same period last year.”
