Why invest in Cargotec
In April 2023 Cargotec's Board of Directors decided to investigate and initiate a process to potentially separate its core businesses Kalmar and Hiab into two standalone companies. Cargotec’s intention would be to separate Kalmar as a new listed company by means of a partial demerger from Cargotec. In February 2024, Cargotec's Board approved a demerger plan concerning the separation of Kalmar into a new listed company. More information.
Cargotec estimates1 Hiab’s comparable operating profit margin in 2024 to be above 12 percent, Kalmar’s comparable operating profit margin in 2024 to be above 11 percent, and MacGregor’s comparable operating profit in 2024 to improve from 2023 (EUR 33 million).

In the second quarter, there are significant challenges in relation to deliveries and demand.

Cargotec updates its outlook for 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and related political decisions and administrative restrictions. In the current exceptional situation Cargotec estimates that it is not able to give a guidance for the year 2020.
Restrictions set by the authorities related to the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the increasing uncertainty, have slowed the decision making among customers and negatively affected Cargotec’s orders and delivery schedules. There are risks associated with the timing of the current order book deliveries, and the visibility is weak.
Cargotec has initiated measures to adjust its cost structure. The measures include the objective of shifting the management and office workers to a four-day working week with a corresponding reduction in salaries, subject to local legislation; a reduction of external services, as well as minimising travel. Cost structure adjustments will continue as the situation requires.
