CARGOTEC CORPORATION, STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE, 29. MARCH 2021 AT 9.30 AM EEST

Cargotec’s comparable operating profit for 2020 in accordance with the new definition

Cargotec changed the definition of the alternative performance measure comparable operating profit and discloses figures in accordance with the new definition for the comparison period 2020. 

As stated in the financial statements review 2020, Cargotec changed the definition of the alternative performance measure comparable operating profit starting from 1 January 2021 to align it with the definition used in the merger prospectus published on 3 December 2020. In addition to the items significantly affecting comparability, the restated comparable operating profit will also exclude the impacts of the purchase price allocation, which amounted to EUR 23 million in 2020. EUR 10 million of the items were related to Kalmar, EUR 2 million to Hiab and EUR 11 million to MacGregor.

Outlook for 2021 unchanged

Cargotec reiterates its outlook published on 4 February 2021 and expects its comparable operating profit for 2021 to improve from 2020 (EUR 227* million).

*Comparable operating profit in accordance with the new definition published in the financial statements review on 4 February 2021 has been specified from EUR 228 million to EUR 227 million.

Figures in accordance with the new definition for the comparison period are unaudited.
