CEO`s comment

Strong sales in key markets
In terms of sales, the period was a positive one for Cavotec with a number of
major orders registered for the Group’s key Airports and Ports & Maritime

As previously announced to the market, Cavotec’s Airports unit reported orders
for its innovative aircraft ground support systems for applications in
Australia, China, Colombia, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy and the US during the
period, with a combined value of more than EUR 11 million. 

The largest of these orders was for Hong Kong International Airport Midfield
Apron Project for which Cavotec is supplying 400Hz power converters, 400Hz
electrical pit systems, deck loader power supply pits, fuel vault access covers
and fuel hydrant pits. 

Also during the period, Cavotec was awarded orders for pre-conditioned air
(PCA) and 400Hz electrical power supply pit systems for 15 aircraft stands at
Rome Fiumicino International Airport, a long-standing Cavotec customer. 

On the Ports & Maritime side of the business, and as also previously
communicated to the market, Cavotec is to supply 16 MoorMaster™ MM400E15 units
for two container berths at the Port of Salalah in Oman. 

A three-year maintenance contract was also signed – a renewal of an existing
agreement – under which Cavotec provides onsite support at all five berths at
Salalah that are equipped with MoorMaster™ units. 

MoorMaster™ units were first trialled at Salalah in 2006, and the technology
has successfully reduced excessive vessel motion, common to the port, caused in
part by “long waves” that are especially pronounced during the Khareef monsoon
season. The new units are scheduled for installation prior to this year’s

Looking ahead
In our main markets – ports and airports – projections of macro-economic growth
remain positive, on average, at around three to four per cent or above. On
January 1, 2017, the new Cavotec Strategic Plan came into effect. The plan
clearly sets out a number of key performance targets for the coming five-year
business cycle, and introduces a new organisational structure for the Cavotec

The plan’s two key targets are to achieve revenues of EUR 500M and EBIT of >12
per cent within five years. In terms of structural change, the Group is now
organised into two Business Units (BU) – Ports & Maritime and Airports &
Industry – fully responsible for their P&L. This contrasts with the previous
geographical organisation, which remains in place only for local follow-up with
customers. We also implemented a Supply Chain-specific organisation responsible
for engineering and manufacturing in support of the two BU. 

With the Strategic Plan in place, Cavotec will be able to focus on its unique
strengths and pave the way to be a trusted global systems and solutions
