Cargotec's President and CEO Mika Vehviläinen:

Despite our many achievements, 2013 was financially disappointing. However, it was pleasing during the fourth quarter to see the amount of orders received increase, while cash flow continued to strengthen from the third quarter.

 

MacGregor's growth strategy progressed significantly during the fourth quarter. Announced in July, the acquisition of Hatlapa was completed in October. Then we also announced our intention to acquire the Aker Solutions' mooring and loading systems unit. These acquisitions will position MacGregor as a leading player in the offshore equipment market.

 

Our main target is to improve our profitability. During 2013, a great deal of work was done in developing our strengths. Although much remains to be done, I expect our efforts to bear fruit this year and also to be reflected in the results.
