Third quarter 2013

The third quarter was disappointing in terms of earnings. The improvement in
volume growth that was seen in both the order intake and invoicing did not
have the impact on earnings that was forecast, primarily due to unfavourable
market and product mix, in addition to the challenging exchange-rate scenario.
The Group will intensify its ongoing work to realise the significant
efficiency potential found within the Group.
