  • Cargotec Corporation has been listed on the Helsinki Stock Exchange since June
    1, 2005. In this pro forma review, Cargotec's results for January-September 2005
    are presented based on its business and corporate structure following the
    demerger of Kone Corporation. Comparative figures for 2004 have been calculated
    based on the same structure to facilitate the financial evaluation of the
    Company. Hence, MacGREGOR's marine cargo flow business is included in the pro
    forma comparison figures. Cargotec Corporation has on October 24, 2005 published
    an Interim Report for June-September 2005.
    Cargotec's President and CEO Carl-Gustaf Bergström:
    "We are very pleased with our third quarter. The higher than expected net sales
    enabled good profitability. Our ability to respond to the increased demand with
    significantly higher delivery volumes than a year ago is a result of successful
    investments in the flexibility of operations. In addition, the order intake in the
    quarter shows that the market situation continued good in all our business areas.
    Furthermore, it is important that cash flow strengthened as we had indicated."
