Cargotec Corporation: Cargotec responds to the weakening offshore and merchant shipping market by announcing savings measures in MacGregor

CARGOTEC CORPORATION, STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 28 APRIL 2015 AT 11.55 AM (EEST)

Cargotec responds to the weakening offshore and merchant shipping market by
announcing savings measures in MacGregor

Cargotec announces savings measures in MacGregor to respond to the weakening
market situation due to the low oil price and low number of new merchant ship
orders.

MacGregor is planning to reach savings by reviewing resourcing and making the
necessary adjustments with a plan to reduce the use of external workforce and
the number of own personnel. Simultaneously MacGregor continues to have a
strong focus on the earlier announced development programmes to improve the
internal effectiveness.

The planned measures are estimated to have an effect of reducing some 220
employees globally. The possible measures for the personnel reductions will
be initiated locally according to the requirements and legislation of each
country. The target is to achieve annual savings of EUR 20 million.

MacGregor employs globally approximately 2,750 persons in 33 countries, with
the biggest number of personnel in Norway 630, Germany 460, China 350 and
Sweden 300. The countries where the impact of the planned measures is
estimated to be biggest are Sweden, Singapore and Norway.

The initiated measures are estimated to create restructuring costs of EUR 5
million in 2015.
