Getinge announces preliminary results for third quarter 2013

Getinge’s consolidated profit before tax for the third quarter 2013 is expected to amount to 560-570 MSEK, which materially deviates from the expectations indicated by the market consensus estimate.

The weaker earnings statement is primarily attributable to the following factors:

-          unfavorable product mix within the Critical Care division

-          time delay in cost synergies related to the TSS acquisition

-          the US Medical Device Tax and negative exchange-rate effects

For the full year, the organic volume growth is still expected to exceed last year and amount to approximately 3-4 %. Profit before tax for the full year is estimated to total at 3 000 – 3 200 MSEK including restructuring expenses and other nonrecurring expenses.

This announcement will be followed by a conference call at 10.00 AM CET today, hosted by Johan Malmquist, CEO Getinge Group and Ulf Grunander, CFO Getinge Group.

Getinge will issue its full Q3 report for 2013 on October 15th at 1:00 PM CET.
