Outlook

Outlook for 2020, 17 July 2020

Visibility towards the end of the year is still weak. In the current exceptional situation Cargotec
estimates that it is not able to give guidance for the year 2020. During the second half of the year,
Cargotec estimates its business and operating environment to develop as follows:

  • 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 2013, 24 October 2013 (published on 15 October 2013)

The sales and operating profit excluding restructuring costs for 2013 are expected to fall short of 2012.

 

Outlook, 15 October 2013

Cargotec reduces its full-year 2013 guidance given in July. Due to continued slippage in merchant ship deliveries, MacGregor's sales and operating profit for the second half of 2013 will be lower than expected. However, the underlying merchant marine market has continued to improve and the offshore market has remained active. In Kalmar, overall development in the third quarter has been positive, but there were further cost overruns in certain ship-to-shore crane projects.The sales and operating profit excluding restructuring costs for 2013 are expected to fall short of 2012. Earlier guidance was for sales to be slightly below 2012 and operating profit excluding restructuring costs to be at or slightly below 2012 level.

 

Outlook Q2 2013, 18 July 2013

Certain deliveries for MacGregor will be delayed and customers are postponing services. MacGregor's 2013 operating profit margin is expected to be slighty below 10 percent, as 2013 sales are falling short of the previously expected approximately EUR 850 million and now are expected to total closer to EUR 800 million. Cargotec's sales are expected to be slightly below 2012 and operating profit excluding restructuring costs to be at or slighty below 2012 level.This outlook is excluding the Hatlapa acquisition announced in July.

 

Outlook Q1 2013, April 2013

Cargotec’s sales are expected to be slightly below 2012 and operating profit excluding restructuring costs to be at 2012 level. Positive impact of efficiency improvement measures implemented will be weighted on the second half of the year.

 

Outlook Q4 2012, February 2013

Cargotec's sales are expected to be slightly below 2012 and operating profit excluding restructuring costs to be at 2012 level. Positive impact of efficiency improvement measures implemented will be weighted on the second half of the year
