Getinge Announces Preliminary Results for Third Quarter 2013 Business Wire GETINGE, Sweden -- October 8, 2013 RegulatoryNews: Getinge’s consolidated profit before tax for the third quarter 2013 is expected to amount to 560-570 MSEK, which materially deviates from the expectations indicated by the market consensus estimate. The weaker earnings statement is primarily attributable to the following factors: - unfavorable product mix within the Critical Care division - time delay in cost synergies related to the TSS acquisition - the US Medical Device Tax and negative exchange-rate effects For the full year, the organic volume growth is still expected to exceed last year and amount to approximately 3-4 %. Profit before tax for the full year is estimated to total at 3000 – 3200 MSEK when adjusted for restructuring expenses and other nonrecurring expenses. This announcement will be followed by a conference call at 10.00 AM CET today, hosted by Johan Malmquist, CEO Getinge Group and Ulf Grunander, CFO Getinge Group.
