Given the challenging market conditions and the divestment of Silva in July, I am very pleased with our sales performance. Our business has so far been relatively resilient to the economic downturn, thanks to our strong brands and products that cater to both consumers’ needs and passions. Our operating profit excluding non-recurring items remained at last year’s level, despite increases in raw material costs and the weakening of the US dollar. Moving into the important holiday season, our focus is on securing sales in an uncertain economic environment.  We are keeping our full-year guidance unchanged and expect full-year net sales and operating profit excluding non-recurring items to be above 2010 levels.” Group key figures EUR million Q3 2011 Q3 2010 Change Q1-Q3 2011 Q1-Q3 2010 Change 2010 Net sales 165.3 159.5 4% 555.2 525.3 6% 715.9 Operating profit (EBIT)* 6.8 12.9 -47% 42.1 47.7 -12% 49.1 Operating profit excluding non-recurring items 13.1 12.9 2% 48.4 47.7 1% 60.4 Share of profit from associated company 7.5 17.3 -56% 29.3 35.9 -18% 65.9 Change in the fair value of standing timber -0.1 -0.6   -0.9 -1.8   -2.2 Profit before taxes** 14.8 26.6 -44% 138.3 76.3 81% 106.7 Profit for the period** 13.6 24.1 -43% 129.7 65.4 98% 94.3 Earnings per share, EUR 0.17 0.29   1.58 0.80   1.15 Equity per share, EUR       6.37 6.57 -3% 6.76 Cash flow from operating activities*** 25.3 18.3 38% 65.5 63.0 4% 92.6 Equity ratio, %       57% 55%   57% Net gearing, %       36% 41%   36% Capital expenditure 4.6 3.5 33% 14.9 11.0 35% 18.6 Personnel (FTE), average 3,463 3,631 -5% 3,606 3,594 0% 3,612 * Including a non-recurring loss of EUR 5.3 million related to the sale of Silva and a EUR 1.1 million non-recurring loss related to product recalls in Q3 2011 ** 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.
