Growth story continues

Turnover growth in the 3rd quarter has been less impacted by adverse exchange rates that in previous quarters. During the first nine months order intake advanced by 2.2% (4.2% at constant exchange rates). Maintenance and service turnover grew by 7.6% in the first nine months excluding the foreign exchange impact. The order book is 8% larger than 12 month ago.

The Group continues to expect full year turnover growth of 4 to 5% based on constant exchange rates. EBITDA is anticipated to increase much stronger than turnover.
