Pre-silent newsletter Q2/2024 (10 July 2024)

As our silent period is about to start, we would like to highlight some of the most notable events of the first half of 2024. Cargotec's half year financial report January–June 2024 will be published on Thursday, 8 August 2024, and the silent period starts on Thursday, 18 July 2024.

Cargotec's financial information in 2024

Cargotec will disclose the following financial information in 2024:

  • Half year financial report January–June 2024, on Thursday, 8 August 2024
  • Interim report January–September 2024, on Wednesday, 23 October 2024

Partial demerger of Cargotec completed

The completion of the partial demerger of Cargotec Corporation and the incorporation of a new Kalmar Corporation was registered in the Finnish Trade Register on 30 June 2024. Cargotec's Annual General Meeting had resolved on the partial demerger of Cargotec in accordance with the demerger plan on 30 May 2024. In April 2023, Cargotec's Board of Directors had decided to investigate and initiate a process to separate Kalmar and Hiab into two standalone companies.

Trading in the Kalmar class B shares on Nasdaq Helsinki commenced on 1 July 2024. Trading in Cargotec’s class B shares has continued on Nasdaq Helsinki with a new ISIN code FI4000571013. The new ISIN code for Cargotec’s class A shares is FI4000571005.

More information about the demerger can be found here.

Cargotec's transformation process

As announced on 14 November 2022,  MacGregor will not be part of Cargotec’s portfolio in the future. Since then, as MacGregor’s performance and market conditions have improved, and as a dispute with a monopile installation vessel customer has been settled, Cargotec has decided to proceed with the sale process of MacGregor.

If a solution to MacGregor is found so that MacGregor would not thereafter be part of the Cargotec group, Cargotec’s Board of Directors is planning to propose to Cargotec’s General Meeting of shareholders that the company’s name would be changed from Cargotec to Hiab. Should such actions be carried out as planned in the leadership of the current President and CEO of Cargotec, Casimir Lindholm has announced his intention to step down as President and CEO at such point. The Board of Directors would then appoint the President of the Hiab business Scott Phillips as the President and CEO of the renamed company being the current Cargotec. Cargotec currently estimates that these changes to transform into standalone Hiab could take place during 2025. The current Cargotec CFO Mikko Puolakka would continue as CFO of standalone Hiab.

Cargotec updates its reporting structure due to the demerger, effective from 30 June 2024

As a result of the  the completion of the partial demerger of Cargotec Corporation, Cargotec has updated its segment reporting and from 30 June 2024 onwards Cargotec has two reporting segments, Hiab and MacGregor. The Kalmar segment has been removed. The new reporting structure will be used in Cargotec’s half-year financial report January–June 2024.

To provide a basis for comparison, Cargotec publishes its reclassified financial information of reportable segments and Corporate administration and support functions for all quarters of 2023 and the first quarter of 2024 separately, as well as for the full year 2023. Corporate administration and support functions now reflect continuing operations. Hiab and MacGregor financial information remains unchanged.

Additionally, Cargotec starts publishing a new alternative performance measure for its Hiab segment; Operative return on capital employed (Operative ROCE, defined as operating profit / operative capital employed, last 12 months). To provide a basis for comparison, Cargotec publishes Hiab’s operative ROCE for all quarters of 2023 and first quarter of 2024 separately.

The change in the reporting structure will not impact Cargotec’s outlook for 2024 which was updated on 26 June 2024:

Cargotec estimates*  Hiab’s comparable operating profit margin in 2024 to be above 12 percent and MacGregor’s comparable operating profit in 2024 to improve from 2023 (EUR 33 million).

* The business area 2024 profitability outlook is presented using the same principles which are applied in the 2023 external financial reporting.

Hiab's new long term financial targets

  • Annual sales growth over seven percent over the cycle
  • Comparable operating profit 18 percent 1
  • Return on capital employed over 25 percent 2

1) as a business area of Cargotec

Other Q2 releases

In July, Hiab launched  HIAB eX.HIPRO crane, featuring cutting edge technological advancements in load handling for energy efficiency, increased productivity and ease of use with minimal environmental impact. The new crane provides unprecedented efficiency with energy savings of up to 30%. The robust construction and superior quality components ensure long-lasting performance, backed by extensive warranties and a wide network of service support.

In June, Cargotec announced that it updates its 2024 outlook due to the completion of the Kalmar demerger. Cargotec estimates* Hiab’s comparable operating profit margin in 2024 to be above 12 percent and MacGregor’s comparable operating profit in 2024 to improve from 2023 (EUR 33 million).

In June, Hiab launched the WALTCO MDV liftgate series for speedy and hassle-free dock loading and distribution. Combined with intuitive controls for easy operations, the new liftgate series offers several sustainability advantages and safety features.

In May, Hiab announced that it expands its spare parts offering so every customer finds a solution tailored to their needs, with the introduction of Red Parts and Exchange Parts to complement Original Parts.

Forterra will be responsible for the integration of their AutoDrive platform for autonomous operations for the terminal tractor.

Strategy progress is measured by financial reporting, leadership index, eco portfolio share of sales and, in the future, CO2 emission reduction and the net promoter score as well.
