FLSmidth: Interim report for the period 1 January - 31 March 2016

Company Announcement no. 10-2016, 18 May 2016

FLSmidth's revenue and EBITA marked by postponed projects

Increased o
rder intake underlines competitive strength.
Full-year guidance maintained.

Group CEO Thomas Schulz comments on the Q1 report: "With the 1stquarter report
published today, we showed that, despite a very
challenging market situation we increased the order intake. This underlines
the strength of FLSmidth. The exceptional
revenue shortfall is mainly due to postponed projects
. Based on the present order backlog and market situation, Group Executive
Management expects a higher activity level in the remainder of 2016 and we
maintain our full-year guidance".

The main conclusions of the
Interim Report are

Q1 is typically seasonally weak, which was particularly true in 2016. Thus,
revenue declined 20% due to very low activity in January, which could not be
compensated for by a pickup in February and March. Divisional gross margins
were generally holding up, whereas EBITA margins were negatively impacted by
low operational leverage caused by the revenue shortfall. Both net working
capital and net interest bearing debt decreased in the quarter. Order intake
increased 19% due to receipt of a large cement order. Full-year guidance is
