  •  Cash flow from operating activities amounted to SEK 97 M (-12), explained by a decrease in working capital due to timing effects.

CEOs Message
The third quarter provided further evidence that BE Group is on the right track. Following a seasonal weak start to the quarter, an increase in net sales of 9 percent was achieved compared to last year, and the underlying result (uEBIT) improved to SEK 22 M (10). The improvement is primarily attributable to increased steel prices and improved profitability in our production operations. The sharp rise in steel prices that occurred in the second quarter was followed by a settling of prices for certain types of steel, resulting in inventory losses of SEK -3 M, compared with inventory gains of SEK 16 M in the same period last year. Consequently, the operating result (EBIT) weakened to SEK 19 M (26).
 
Structural and organizational change
The closure of the production unit in Eskilstuna is proceeding according to plan. The affected employees have contributed in exemplary manner to a successful process, with the operating activities now having been discontinued. The discontinuation has been implemented within the framework of expenses of SEK -45 M charged in the second quarter.
 
Outlook
Demand is expected to remain favorable in the company's main markets. The Swedish and Finnish manufacturing sectors are developing well and we take a positive view of the future. Steel prices are again expected to increase slightly until the end of the year and, combined with ongoing improvement measures and the discontinuation of unprofitable operations, the Group's profitability is expected to develop positively. We therefore expect a substantial improvement in earnings in the fourth quarter compared with the previous year.
