Cargotec reduces its 2012 profitability guidance given in April due to lower operating result in Terminals segment than previously expected. Cargotec's 2012 operating profit margin is expected to be approximately 6 percent. Sales are still expected to grow from 2011. Earlier guidance was for sales to grow and operating profit margin to improve from previous year's 6.6 percent level. Terminals and Load Handling segments' operating profit margins are still expected to improve from the previous year, but the margin improvement in Terminals will be clearly less than previously expected.
Cargotec will initiate actions to improve efficiency and profitability in its Terminals and Load Handling segments.
