Gunnebo: Gunnebo Year-End Release 2015

Comments on the third quarter by Gunnebo's President and CEO, Henrik
Lange

"Order intake during the quarter was good and increased organically in
all regions. Organic order intake for the Group as a whole increased
by 3%, primarily driven by the Entrance Security and Cash Management
product groups.

In Entrance Security, orders were received during the quarter from
Hamburg Airport and two large airports in Canada, and also from metro
lines in the Chinese cities of Tianjin and Shenzhen. These orders all
involved the delivery and installation of entrance security gates.

Growth has been good in Cash Management during the quarter. By
introducing the Group's offering on new markets, Gunnebo is working
actively to develop its business in this area. For instance, the
offering was successfully launched in Mexico during the quarter, and
the first order has been received.

Another important part of the Group's strategic agenda is to grow the
business with both national and international key customers. During
the quarter, a French jewellery chain the Group has been working with
for a long time ordered vaults for its stores in the USA. Meanwhile,
the French grocery chain, Carrefour, has engaged Gunnebo to provide a
complete electronic security solution for its stores in Brazil.

Net sales amounted to MSEK 1,677 during the fourth quarter, which
equates to organic growth of 2%. This positive development is
primarily attributable to increased sales of solutions for Cash
Management and Entrance Security as well as Service. The EMEA and
Asia-Pacific regions both showed organic growth, while in Region
Americas the trend was negative due to weaker sales in the bank
sector in North America.

Gunnebo continued to optimise the production structure for Cash
Management during the quarter, as a consequence of acquiring Sallén
in July 2015. Manufacturing will therefore be relocated from the
factory in Trier, Germany, to other Gunnebo factories during 2016.

Operating profit amounted to MSEK 121 (116) during the quarter, and
the operating margin to 7.2% (7.4%). The operating profit includes
one-off costs of MSEK 28 (32) relating to the relocation of
production from Trier and ongoing cost adaptations in Europe. The
operating margin excluding one-off costs totalled 8.9% (9.4%)."
