Reading time ( words)

Efore Plc has lowered its financial estimate for 2015 due to lower-than-forecast demand in mainly telecommunication sector during the latter part of the year.

New financial estimate is:

The company estimates its net sales of financial year 2015 to be EUR 86 to 92 million and results from operating activities without one-time items to be at break-even level or mildly positive.

Previous financial estimate was:

The company estimates its net sales of financial year 2015 to be EUR 86-96 million and results from operating activities without one-time items to be EUR 2-5 million.

Efore continues a cost-saving and efficiency improvement programme started during the summer. The company structure has been streamlined and the organisation has been flattened through integration of business units. Furthermore, the cost structure of certain products has been improved and there are production efficiency improvements both at Tunisia and Suzhou plants. The results of these measures will begin to show mainly during 2016.

Efore will publish its interim report for the 3rd quarter on October 21, 2015.
