Reading time ( words)

In the second quarter, sales in local currencies rose by 19 percent compared with the corresponding period in 2014. Over the quarter, the adjusted consolidated operating loss improved to SEK 4 million. The second quarter was eventful for PartnerTech with Scanfil Oyj presenting a public takeover bid to PartnerTech’s shareholders, offering to acquire all shares in the company. In this extraordinary situation, we are continuing to focus on improving our operations. During the quarter, we signed several new framework agreements and won orders from customers in the Oil&Gas and Defence segments. As a consequence of the new orders, the Metal Precision division has improved somewhat, with its utilization level already having risen by the end of the quarter. The Electronics division reported continued strong growth, while the ramp-up in China also affected profitability for this quarter. Systems Integration also reported strong growth and the division’s profitability continues to improve.
