Third quarter of 2014

The demand for capital equipment in emerging markets improved according to plan during the quarter, although not to the anticipated extent. At the same time, growth increased slowly in the mature markets. Given the low level of growth in organic sales during the quarter, operating profit for the Group as a whole developed in a satisfactory manner

Order intake

The trend for the Group’s order intake was weak during the quarter and declined organically by 0.2%. As expected, the order intake in emerging markets improved and increased organically by more than 10% during the period. The trend for the order intake in mature markets was weak during the period, particularly with respect to Western Europe and Japan.
