Cargotec's President and CEO Mikael Mäkinen:
"Our orders received during the third quarter grew 56 percent from the previous year and we reached 6.7 percent operating profit margin, which I am satisfied with. Positive development in our market environment continued in all businesses. The activity level in the more slowly recovering Terminal business also developed favourable considering next year. However, the development in the world economy is still characterised by uncertainty. In September, we refined our strategic focus for the coming years while reconfirming our financial targets. In order to strengthen our market leadership in the next few years, we prioritise our actions and resources to the following areas: customers and customer segments, services, emerging markets and internal clarity", affirms President and CEO Mikael Mäkinen.

The load handling equipment markets have developed positively over the year. However, this recovery is uneven, varying geographically and by customer segment. The Americas have seen the most powerful recovery. On the other hand, despite the seasonal nature of the third quarter demand continued to revive on the equipment side, particularly for loader cranes, forklift trucks and truck-mounted forklifts, as well as tail lifts.
The recovery in demand for container handling equipment in ports remained sluggish, despite the increasing number of containers handled in Asian ports in particular, as well as the improved container traffic forecasts for 2010. The second quarter saw the first orders for large equipment after several sluggish quarters and the positive development continued during the third quarter. Project demand, however, was still rather modest, causing price pressure on the markets.
The market for marine cargo handling equipment has continued to be favourable, being clearly more active than expected at the beginning of the year. In addition, shipyards succeeded in reselling capacity freed up by cancellations, which reflected positively in new orders received by equipment suppliers. In particular, demand for equipment for bulk vessels grew. However, the market for offshore equipment was active, despite customers exercising caution in their decision-making processes. Demand for container ship equipment is showing signs of recovery after a couple of inactive years, while demand for RoRo equipment steadied after a strong first half.
Due to improvements in customer capacity utilisation rates, the service markets saw a clear improvement after a quiet start to the year. During the period, the recovery in demand for spare part sales extended to other service areas.
Orders received and order book
Orders received during the third quarter totalled EUR 683 (437) million, which was 56 percent more than in the comparison period. Previously received orders by Marine for EUR 71 million were cancelled, and were removed from the order book. This amount consists mainly of two big cancellations.
Orders received in January-September totalled EUR 2,013 (1,364) million, 48 percent higher than a year before. During the first nine months, order cancellations totalled EUR 119 million in Marine.
At the end of September, the order book totalled EUR 2,395 (31 Dec 2009: 2,149) million, which was 11 percent higher than at the end of 2009.
Orders received by reporting segment
|Industrial & Terminal||389||278||40%||1,228||956||28%||1,260|
Industrial & Terminal's orders received during the third quarter totalled EUR 389 (278) million, 40 percent higher than a year before. When comparing the total value of orders with that of the previous quarter, note should be taken of seasonality in the third quarter. Orders secured by Industrial business mainly included small individual orders, whereas, Terminal business received orders for smaller equipment while demand for bigger equipment remained sluggish. Orders received in January-September totalled EUR 1,228 (956) million.
During the reporting period, Industrial & Terminal received orders for 200 terminal tractors from the US and an order for 14 environmentally friendly straddle carriers from a French terminal operator.
During the second quarter, Industrial & Terminal received an order for two ship-to-shore cranes from Turkey and an order for six zero emission E-One rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTG) from Vietnam. A Russian port operator ordered six RTGs and 10 terminal tractors. In addition, an order worth more than EUR 10 million for truck-mounted forklifts was received from a company specialising in home improvement.
During the first quarter, Industrial & Terminal received new orders worth USD 110 million for rough terrain container handlers from Tank-Automotive Armament Command (TACOM), part of the US Department of Defence. The orders were received under a five-year production contract signed in 2008. Orders received under this contract now total approximately USD 350 million.
Industrial & Terminal's order book at the end of September totalled EUR 710 (31 Dec 2009: 546) million, which was 30 percent higher than at the end of 2009.
Marine's orders were again strong in the third quarter, accounting for EUR 294 (158) million, 85 percent more than the comparison period. In 2010, shipyards have managed to resell capacity vacated due to cancellations and postponements, while beginning to build new bulk ships with a short delivery time. Orders were received for cranes and hatch covers for bulk ships in particular. Orders received during the first nine months totalled EUR 786 (409) million.
In August, Marine received orders for ship cranes worth over EUR 80 million from China and South Korea. A total of 275 cranes will be delivered for 64 bulk ships and eight general cargo vessels. During the third quarter, Marine also received an order from Lithuania for a self-unloading system and an order from Brazil for offshore equipment. In addition, an order worth EUR 13 million was received for hatch covers for six general cargo vessels owned by a Norwegian shipowner. This order is an addition to a EUR 20 million contract for electric-drive cranes for the same vessels, signed during the second quarter.
During the second quarter, Marine received a EUR 20 million order for subsea load and module handling systems from Singapore as well as orders worth EUR 20 million for cranes and hatch covers for bulk carriers from a Chinese shipyard. These orders comprise 68 cranes and design and key components for hatch covers for 26 vessels. In addition, a contract was signed with a Japanese shipyard, for the delivery of electrically-driven RoRo equipment for two car carriers.
During the first quarter, Marine received an order for two knuckle-jib cranes from Singapore. The value of this order was approximately EUR 12 million. These active heave compensated cranes will be installed on an ultra-deepwater supply vessel and self-propelled accommodation barge. In addition, Marine will deliver an active heave compensated knuckle-jib crane for an offshore vessel being built in the Netherlands.
Orders for container lashings, hatch covers and RoRo equipment were also received during the reporting period. A Korean shipyard ordered lashings for 17 mega container ships. Lashings will also be delivered for 13 container ships owned by a Canadian shipowner. Hatch covers for six bulk ships under construction at a Korean shipyard will be delivered in 2011. This contract follows an order from December 2009 for 24 cranes on the same vessels. Moreover, a contract was signed for RoRo equipment for six vessels, and self-unloading systems will be delivered for three cement carriers for an Indian customer. In addition, an order was signed for a fuel receiving system for a Singaporean power plant.
Marine's order book at the end of September totalled EUR 1,686 (31 Dec 2009: 1,604) million. Around 70 percent of the order book is bulk, general cargo and container ship-related. Offshore support vessels-related orders comprise more than 10 percent of the order book. Orders cancelled in January-September, EUR 119 million, were removed from the order book.
Services orders received in January-September increased in all areas of service business. Although a large number of small contracts typical of the service business were signed, customers further delayed decision-making related to major contracts. Major service orders received during the period included contracts to refurbish and upgrade ten ship-to-shore cranes with Malaysian port operator, three-year full service contracts for RoRo equipment for 25 vessels from Grimaldi Group and agreements for conversions of RoRo equipment on five Ropax vessels from the Swedish Stena Line. In addition, a refurbishment project for a cement ship unloader was received from a Singaporean cement terminal.
Third quarter sales grew 14 percent from the comparison period and totalled EUR 635 (559) million. Sales reached the same level as in the second quarter.
January-September sales decreased 4 percent from the comparison period and amounted to EUR 1,828 (1,912) million. In terms of sales, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) was the largest market, its share being 41 (48) percent of consolidated sales. The Americas' share of sales was 18 (17) and that of Asia Pacific 41 (35) percent.
Sales by reporting segment
|Industrial & Terminal||379||331||15%||1,055||1,209||-13%||1,573|
Industrial & Terminal's sales for the third quarter totalled EUR 379 (331) million, which was 15 percent more than a year before. Industrial & Terminal's sales for January-September were EUR 1,055 (1,209) million, 13 percent lower than during the comparison period. Thanks to a pick-up in demand and production ramp-up the delivery volumes grew clearly during the second and third quarters. At the beginning of the year, sales were burdened by a low order book at the year-end as well as uncompleted transfers of production between assembly factories.
Marine's sales for the third quarter totalled EUR 256 (229) million, representing 12 percent growth on the comparison period. January-September sales for Marine were EUR 774 (704) million, which was 10 percent more that in the comparison period. This sales growth was the result of the strong order book and successful project deliveries.
Services sales during the third quarter amounted to EUR 176 (150) million starting to gradually reflect a recovery of the service market. Services sales amounted to EUR 129 (113) million at Industrial & Terminal and at Marine EUR 47 (38) million.
In January-September, services sales amounted to EUR 513 (491) million, representing 28 (26) percent of total sales. Services sales amounted to EUR 368 (346) million at Industrial & Terminal, representing 35 (29) percent of the reporting segment's sales. Services sales at Marine amounted to EUR 145 (146) million, which was 19 (21) percent of its sales.
The operating profit for the third quarter increased clearly from the comparison period totalling EUR 42.2 (-3.3) million. Operating profit includes EUR 0.6 (14.9) million in restructuring costs, of which EUR 0.9 (12.6) million are related to Industrial & Terminal, EUR -0.2 (0.0) million to Marine and EUR -0.1 (2.3) million to corporate functions. A small capital gain from selling property in Ljungby, Sweden, was booked in restructuring costs to corporate functions in third quarter turning the costs for the quarter positive. The factory and spare parts operations in Ljungby were closed and consolidated as a part of Cargotec's restructuring programme.
Operating profit for the third quarter, excluding restructuring costs, was EUR 42.8 (11.6) million, representing 6.7 (2.1) percent of sales. Operating profit for Industrial & Terminal, excluding restructuring costs, was EUR 16.0 (-7.3) million and EUR 36.4 (22.9) million for Marine.
The consolidated operating profit for January-September turned strongly positive and totalled EUR 92.9 (-7.1) million, representing 5.1 (-0.4) percent of sales. Operating profit includes EUR 4.5 (36.7) million in restructuring costs, of which EUR 2.9 (33.1) million are related to Industrial & Terminal, EUR 0.1 (0.0) million to Marine and EUR 1.5 (3.7) million to corporate functions. Operating profit for January-September, excluding restructuring costs, totalled EUR 97.4 (29.6) million. Operating profit for Industrial & Terminal, excluding restructuring costs, was EUR 16.2 (-8.1) million and EUR 114.4 (64.7) million for Marine.
Compared to the first half, during the third quarter Industrial & Terminal's profitability continued its clear improvement, due to the recovering market environment and higher volumes. At the beginning of the year profitability was hampered by additional costs related to challenges in ramping-up production. Although Marine's profitability remained high during the third quarter, as expected it turned down with the fall in the share of very high-margin deliveries based on orders won during the boom. Restructuring measures executed within the group are facilitating better profitability.
Net financing expenses were EUR -7.1 (-6.1) million for the third quarter and EUR -21.6 (-20.1) million for January-September.
Net income for the third quarter was EUR 23.2 (-0.1) million and earnings per share EUR 0.38 (-0.02). Net income for January-September totalled EUR 54.2 (-5.9) million and earnings per share EUR 0.82 (-0.13).
Balance sheet, cash flow and financing
The consolidated balance sheet total was EUR 2,771 (31 Dec 2009: 2,687) million at the end of September. Equity attributable to the equity holders was EUR 1,007 (871) million, representing EUR 16.41 (14.20) per share. Tangible assets on the balance sheet were EUR 289 (301) million and intangible assets EUR 830 (784) million. The total equity/total assets ratio increased to 42.8 (37.5) percent.

Interest bearing debt amounted to EUR 502 (612) million, of which EUR 52 (83) million was current and EUR 450 (529) million non-current debt. Cash and cash equivalents, loans receivable and other interest-bearing assets totalled EUR 238 (277) million. In addition, at the end of the reporting period, Cargotec had EUR 585 million of undrawn long-term credit facilities, which are available until 2012-2013.
In September, Cargotec repurchased partly its euro-denominated domestic bond due in June 2012 as a part of active management of liquidity and loan refinancing risks. Cargotec agreed to repurchase a nominal amount of EUR 77.8 million from the note holders, which represents 77.8 percent of the original EUR 100 million bond issued in 2005. After this repurchase EUR 22.2 million of this bond is still out at the market.
New products and product development
Research and product development expenditure in January-September was EUR 27.8 (27.5) million, representing 1.5 (1.4) percent of sales.
During the reporting period, integration testing of automatic stacking cranes with customer's terminal systems was finalised in the Hamburg CTB terminal and the first three cranes were handed over to the customer. New products were introduced to the market, such as a new empty container handler, which meets the strictest requirements for energy efficiency and ergonomics, and a new truck-mounted forklift with a telescopic boom that allows easier loading and unloading. Cargotec also continued product development projects to meet the new Machine Directive 2006/42/EC safety regulations. In addition, the launch of the EcoService concept in February will aim at bringing new levels of cost efficiency, productivity and reliability to terminal customers' operations. Furthermore, three new hooklifts were introduced in the demountable product family.
In March, Cargotec signed an agreement with the multinational Ros Roca Environment, according to which Cargotec will undertake the representation of Dennis Eagle and Ros Roca waste compactors for refuse collection vehicles in Finland, Sweden and Norway. This cooperation comprises sales, marketing and service.
Cargotec has designed an innovative vehicle transfer system for the US Navy to transfer military vehicles including tanks between ships at sea. Sea trials were successfully completed during the first quarter. The aim is to provide the US military with the capability for large-scale logistics movements from sea to shore without dependency on foreign ports.
Capital expenditure for January-September, excluding acquisitions and customer financing, totalled EUR 35.2 (63.7) million. Investments in customer financing were EUR 10.5 (16.2) million. Depreciation for the first nine months amounted to EUR 43.9 (41.6) million.
In September, Cargotec celebrated the opening of its new multi-assembly unit (MAU) in Stargard Szczecinski in Poland. The investment decision was made in April 2009. Production began in rented premises and transfer to own premises at the new site began at the end of the second quarter of 2010. Currently, load cranes, spreaders and terminal tractors are assembled in the factory. The cash flow impact of the investment cost was EUR 10 million for January-September. Total investment in 2009-2010 amounted to EUR 28 million.
Acquisitions and disposals
In July, Cargotec acquired a 10 percent minority holding in MacGREGOR Hydramarine AS. Subsequent to this transaction, Cargotec owns all the shares in the company.
In March, Cargotec signed a letter of intent to acquire the remaining 25 percent minority share holding in MacGREGOR-Kayaba Ltd in Japan. The transaction was closed in May, and subsequent the transaction, Cargotec owns all the shares in the company.
In January, Cargotec sold its US-based hydraulic cylinders manufacturing business Waltco Hydraulics to Ligon Industries, LLC. Waltco Hydraulics, situated in Ohio, was part of Waltco Lift Corp. belonging to the Industrial & Terminal business area at Cargotec. Waltco Hydraulics employed 25 people.

North and South American personnel represented 11 (11) percent, Asia Pacific 25 (26) percent and the rest of the world 2 (2) percent of total employees.
Adjusting capacity to demand and other restructuring measures
Capacity adjustments and other restructuring measures that began in 2008 were finalised during the first quarter 2010. As a result, the number of employees fell by approximately 3,200.
Above-mentioned restructuring initiatives, including structural capacity adjustment measures, were estimated to create total annual cost savings exceeding EUR 150 million. This savings estimate includes all cost structure streamlining actions announced since the beginning of 2008.
During the third quarter, Cargotec proceeded with its plans to transform its Tampere unit into a competence and technology centre. The plan is to change the focus of the Tampere unit from traditional manufacturing to the development of new products and solutions. Consequently, Cargotec initiated employee cooperation negotiations on possible workforce reduction with the current supply personnel in Tampere. It is estimated that these measures will affect approximately 95 employees, while the planned change will take around two years.
Strategy and financial targets
In September, Cargotec refined its strategy. Cargotec will have a clear focus, meaning a prioritised set of actions and resource allocation in order to strengthen its market leadership in the coming years. Cargotec aims to grow faster than the industry average. Cargotec is determined to grow its business through customer focus, with segmentation guiding future business development. In addition, growth will be achieved by expanding Cargotec's presence and offering, particularly in emerging markets and the service business.

The earnings criteria for the earning period 2010-2012 are Cargotec's operating profit margin and sales of the fiscal year 2012.
The potential reward will be paid partly as Cargotec's class B shares and partly in cash in 2013, 2014 and 2015. The proportion to be paid in cash is intended to cover taxes and tax-related costs arising from the reward. The rewards to be paid on the basis of the earning period 2010-2012 will correspond to the approximate value of a maximum total of 100,000 Cargotec class B shares (including also the proportion to be paid in cash).
The remaining earning periods 2010 and 2011 of the former share-based incentive programme 2007-2011 were not commenced as the new programme replacing the current programme was implemented as from the beginning of 2010. On the basis of the former programme, a total of 31,356 class B shares were paid as reward to key personnel for the first earning period 2007-2008. No rewards were paid for the second earning period 2009 as the targets established for the earnings criteria were not attained. A total of 387,500 series B shares were initially reserved for the programme.
The AGM confirmed that stock options will be issues to the key personnel of Cargotec and its subsidiaries. The target group of the programme is approximately 60 persons including the members of Cargotec Executive Board. The share subscription period for stock options 2010A, will be 1 April 2013-30 April 2015, for stock options 2010B, 1 April 2014-30 April 2016 and for stock options 2010C, 1 April 2015-30 April 2017.
The beginning of the share subscription period requires attainment of targets established for a performance criterion determined by the Board of Directors annually. Those stock options, for which the targets have not been attained, will expire. The Board of Directors has decided that if the operating profit of the financial year 2010 is below EUR 100 million, the share subscription period with stock options 2010A will not commence; if the operating profit of the financial year 2010 is at least EUR 100 million but below EUR 120 million, the share subscription period will commence with half of the stock options 2010A; if the operating profit of the financial year 2010 is EUR 120 million or above, the share subscription period will commence with all of the stock options 2010A. The share subscription price for stock option 2010A is EUR 21.35/share.
Market capitalisation and trading
At the end of the third quarter, the total market value of class B shares was EUR 1,643 million, excluding treasury shares held by the Company. The period-end market capitalisation, in which unlisted class A shares are valued at the average price of class B shares on the last trading day of the reporting period, was EUR 1,946 million, excluding treasury shares held by the Company.
The class B share closed at EUR 31.70 on 30 September 2010 in NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd. The volume weighted average share price in January-September was EUR 23.60, the highest quotation being EUR 32.43 and the lowest EUR 19.16. In January-September, approximately 37 million class B shares were traded on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd., corresponding to a turnover of approximately EUR 867 million.
Short-term risks and uncertainties
The recovery in the world economy has reflected positively on Cargotec's operating environment. However, this development is characterised by uncertainty. Possible postponements of investments in port container handling equipment will affect the improvement in the sales and profitability of Terminal business.
Once again, we must actively monitor customer and supplier risks within certain markets. Should such risks be fulfilled, credit losses and problems in the supply chain could have a damaging effect on Cargotec. Conversely, recovered markets present the risk of occasional disruptions in component availability within the supplier chain, as all players ramp up production from the former, exceptionally low, level.
Cargotec estimates that approximately EUR 250 million of Marine's order book involves a risk of cancellation. However, the likelihood of such cancellations materialising has decreased substantially from the second quarter. Overcapacity in shipping has decreased during the year, but there is still a risk of shipowners reappraising the need to cancel ordered vessels or postpone deliveries.
Events after reporting period
In October, Cargotec acquired a 9.99 percent minority holding in MacGREGOR Plimsoll Pte Ltd. Subsequent to this transaction, Cargotec owns all the shares in the company.
Cargotec continues to estimate 2010 sales to be on 2009 level for both Industrial & Terminal and Marine segments. Operating profit for 2010 is expected to be in the range of EUR 120-130 million including one-time restructuring costs.
The recovery in the market environment and the resulting growth in order volumes support growth in Industrial. The sales of Terminal are expected to fall short of 2009 levels due to the slower recovery of these markets, as second half orders will not have an effect on full-year sales due to delivery times. Based on the healthy nine-month development, strong order book and new orders received still to be delivered during 2010, sales in Marine will reach year 2009 level.

Acquisitions and disposals
In May, Cargotec acquired 25 per cent of the shares of Japanese MacGREGOR-Kayaba Ltd., and in July, Cargotec acquired 10 percent of the share of the Norwegian MacGREGOR Hydramarine AS. Subsequent to these acquisitions, Cargotec owns all shares in the above mentioned companies.
In January, Cargotec has sold its US-based hydraulic cylinders manufacturing business Waltco Hydraulics to Ligon Industries, LLC. This transaction had no material impact on Cargotec's result or cash flow.
The interim report has been prepared according to the International Accounting Standard 34: Interim Financial Reporting. The accounting policies adopted are consistent with those of the annual financial statements for 2009. All figures presented have been rounded and consequently the sum of individual figures may deviate from the presented sum figure.
Adoption of the new and revised IFRS standards as of January 1, 2010
Starting from January 1, 2010 Cargotec has adopted the following revised standards published in 2008 and 2009 by the IASB:
- IFRS 3R, Business Combinations (revised). The adoption of the revised standard has an impact on the accounting of business combinations.
- Amendment to IAS 27 Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements. The amendment has an impact on accounting of the changes in ownership in subsidiaries.
- Amendment to IAS 39, Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement: Eligible Hedged Items. The amendment clarifies the guidance of the hedge accounting.
Additionally, Cargotec has adopted the amendments related to the IFRS 2008 and 2009 Annual Improvements, which have been endorsed by EU. Aforementioned changes have no material impact on the interim report.
Restatement of reporting segments' comparable figures
As of January 1, 2010 Cargotec has two reporting segments, Industrial & Terminal and Marine. At the same time the definition of Services business was clarified. Reporting segments' financial information for comparable periods has been restated accordingly.
