Correction: Getinge announces preliminary results for third quarter 2013
| Source:Getinge AB
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
- 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.

hosted by Johan Malmquist, CEO Getinge Group and Ulf Grunander, CFO Getinge
Getinge will issue its full Q3 report for 2013 on October 15th at 1:00 PM CET.
