Cargotec reiterates its 2011 guidance:Cargotec's 2011 sales are estimated to grow approximately 20 percent. Healthy first half order intake both in Industrial & Terminal and Marine segments together with the recovery in the market situation support a more positive growth expectation. Sales growth and significant efficiency improvement measures executed during the past years, support profitability, but there is cost pressure on the markets. Cargotec's 2011 operating profit margin is estimated to be approximately 7 percent.

Cargotec's President and CEO Mikael Mäkinen:
"Second quarter order intake shows that market activity has remained favourable. 25 percent sales growth and improved operating profit margin together with order intake support our view on the full year performance. During the first half, we worked intensively on our refined strategy. Our decision to establish a global competence centre for container terminals development in Singapore is an example of actions we are working on. Understanding future customer needs requires an extensive geographic presence and tight collaboration with customers and other stakeholders worldwide. Recently, we received an important recognition from our customer, when Mitsubishi Industries Shimonoseki shipyard gave Marine Offshore business and our Japanese team the Best Supplier 2010 award".
