  • The recovery of market activity continues
  • The delivery capability of Cargotec and its supply chain continues to improve
  • Productivity improvements support profitability in the future as well

Outlook for 2020, 23 April 2020

On 27 March 2020, Cargotec updated its outlook for 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and related political decisions and administrative restrictions. In the current exceptional situation Cargotec estimated that it is not able to give a guidance for the year 2020. Cargotec publishes a new guidance at a later date.

Previous guidance (given on 6 February 2020): Cargotec expects its comparable operating profit for 2020 to improve from 2019 (EUR 264 million).

In the second quarter, there are significant challenges in relation to deliveries and demand. Cargotec estimates a significant decline in orders, sales, comparable operating profit and cash flow in the second quarter compared to the second quarter of 2019. During the first weeks of April 2020, Cargotec’s orders received have significantly decreased from the comparison period. Due to the challenging operating environment, visibility towards the end of the year is currently weak.

27 March 2020: Cargotec lowers its 2020 financial outlook and withdraws its guidance for 2020, gives a new guidance later

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.

Cargotec publishes a new guidance at a later date.

Outlook for 2020, 6 February 2020

Cargotec expects its comparable operating profit for 2020 to improve from 2019 (EUR 264 million).

Outlook Q3 2012, 25 October 2012 (published 15 October 2012)

The operating profit margin for 2012 is expected to be approximately 5 percent excluding non-recurring costs. Sales are expected to grow from 2011.

 

Outlook, 15 October 2012

Cargotec reduces its full-year 2012 operating profit margin guidance given in July. Due to cost overruns, the profitability of large projects in the Terminals business area fell below expectations in the third quarter, and therefore also the fourth quarter performance is expected to remain below previous expectations. Cargotec's guidance is also affected by slippages of deliveries over the year-end into 2013 in the Marine business area.

The operating profit margin for 2012 is expected to be approximately 5 percent excluding non-recurring costs. Sales are still expected to grow from 2011.

 

Outlook Q2 2012, 19 July 2012

Cargotec's 2012 operating profit margin is expected to be approximately 6 percent. Sales are expected to grow from 2011.

 

Outlook 12 June 2012

Cargotec reduces its 2012 profitability guidance given in April due to lower operating result in Terminals segment than previously expected. Cargotec's 2012 operating profit margin is expected to be approximately 6 percent. Sales are still expected to grow from 2011. Earlier guidance was for sales to grow and operating profit margin to improve from previous year's 6.6 percent level. Terminals and Load Handling segments' operating profit margins are still expected to improve from the previous year, but the margin improvement in Terminals will be clearly less than previously expected.

 

Outlook Q1 2012, 26 April 2012

Marine segment profitability is expected to continue healthy, although full year sales are expected to decline slightly from previous year. Sales in Terminals and Load Handling segments are expected to grow as a result of the order book. Terminals segment order book supports expectations that the segment’s profitability will clearly improve from the first quarter.Cargotec expects its 2012 sales to grow and operating profit margin to improve compared to 2011.

 

Outlook Q4 2011, 7 February 2012

Cargotec expects its 2012 sales to grow and operating profit margin to improve compared to 2011.
