Comment by Leif Östling, President and CEO:

“ The western European market development remains hard to assess. The increase in order bookings during March could indicate that the market is on its way towards a turnaround. Given our new product generation and the continued streamlining of our European production system, we are well positioned to respond to an upturn."
