CEO’s comment

“"We are pleased to see a continued year over year improvement in the quarter with solid sales and EBIT development. In constant currency, net sales increased by 8 percent, 10 percent adjusted for the divestment of Dometic Umformtechnik GmbH in Rudersdorf, Germany.

Strong market developments continue in North America but the uncertainty in Europe remains although some markets show signs of stabilization. Our sales grew in the quarter in all Regions and showed strength in all sales channels, especially the aftermarket which grew almost by 12 percent.

EBIT increased in the quarter, primarily due to an upturn in volumes and more solid manufacturing performance. Cash flow from operating activities was slightly down in quarter compared to the same quarter last year mainly due to higher inventory and accounts receivables driven by higher sales.

For the full year we note an increase in net sales in constant currency and a small improvement in margins despite a negative impact from currency,” says Dometic Group’s President and CEO, Roger Johansson.”
