Across our portfolio and segments, however, performance varied from weak to strong. Even within business areas, consumer demand developed unevenly between different geographical segments. At Group level, the weaker US dollar affected Fiskars’ consolidated net sales and operating profit. Profit was also negatively impacted by temporary production inefficiencies in EMEA, which were partly related to increased production volumes. After a strong first-quarter sell-in, consumer demand has developed unevenly from month to month. Given the worries about the economic outlook, consumers are likely to continue weighing their spending decisions carefully. Increasing raw material prices pressure us to increase our sales prices towards the end of the year.” Group key figures EUR million Q2 2011 Q2 2010 Change Q1-Q2 2011 Q1-Q2 2010 Change 2010 Net sales 200.6 195.9 2% 389.9 365.9 7% 715.9 Operating profit (EBIT) 19.0 22.2 -15% 35.3 34.8 1% 49.1 Share of profit from associated company 10.6 13.2 -20% 21.7 18.6 17% 65.9 Change in the fair value of standing timber -0.2 -0.6   -0.7 -1.2   -2.2 Profit before taxes* 28.6 34.0 -16% 123.5 49.7 148% 106.7 Profit for the period* 24.2 28.4 -15% 116.1 41.3 181% 94.3 Earnings per share, EUR 0.30 0.35   1.42 0.50   1.15 Equity per share, EUR       6.16 6.41 -4% 6.76 Cash flow from operating activities** 8.2 31.4 -74% 40.2 44.8 -10% 92.6 Equity ratio, %       53% 53%   57% Net gearing, %       43% 44%   36% Capital expenditure 5.1 5.0 2% 10.3 7.6 36% 18.6 Personnel (FTE), average 3,714 3,594 3% 3,677 3,576 3% 3,612 *Including a non-recurring profit of EUR 69.8 million from the sale of Wärtsilä shares in Q1 2011 **Including Wärtsilä dividend of EUR 40.9 million in Q1 2011 (29.5) Full interim report The full interim report is published as a pdf file attachment to this summary stock exchange release and is available on the company’s Web site at www.fiskarsgroup.com.
