Lars Corneliusson, President and CEO, comments: In the third quarter of 2021, Ferronordic achieved another record result. Total revenue grew by 47% to SEK 1,661m and the operating profit was SEK 147m with an operating margin of 8.9%. Working capital remained low as demand outpaced limited supply. Cash flows from operating activities were strong and contributed to the Group moving back to a net cash position. In Russia/CIS, the market for construction equipment remained strong as commodity prices grew and infrastructure investments continued. Customer machine utilisation also increased, which together with our digital sales efforts contributed to good growth in aftermarket sales. In contracting services, we continued to develop our project in Norilsk. Total revenue in Russia/CIS grew by 48% and the operating profit by 44% to SEK 179m. In October, we announced the expansion of our partnership with Sandvik on mobile crushers and screens to also become the distributor of the bigger and more complex stationary crushers and screens. In Germany, the total market for heavy trucks was largely flat. In our sales area, the market declined by 13% while our new trucks sales increased by 25% in units and we gained further market share. Our used trucks business, launched at the end of 2020, continued to grow. Our aftermarket sales improved, partly due to acquisitions. During the third quarter, we accelerated efforts to restructure and improve our organisation. Partly as a result restructuring costs, operating result decreased compared to last year. We continue to build a customer centric platform and develop our network. In the quarter, we started construction of our new service and sales hub for the Hannover region and also announced the acquisition of a workshop in Bergstrasse. Current uncertainty in our markets mainly relates to supply chain constraints, which we expect to continue well into 2022. In a longer perspective, we see strong underlying fundamentals and business opportunities in our markets.
