In 2006, business development was affected by the consolidation trend
in the telecommunications sector and the overall and structural
changes in the contract manufacturing market in telecommunications
technology and industrial electronics. The significant restructurings
in the telecommunications sector and the related changes in the
control of customers’ logistics slowed down demand especially in the
last quarter. The network customer market increased globally but
focused on developing markets and service business even more strongly
than in previous years. Due to the changes in the operating
environment, it has been extremely difficult to predict demand.
Reduced turnover in spite of the increased production volumes was also
typical of the past year, due to the increasingly intensive price
competition from lower-cost countries and the more inexpensive and
simpler product structures of the products. Changes in the market also
affected the broadband products market, and the delivery volumes of
the product group remained at a clearly lower level than in the
previous year throughout the year, as predicted.

In the industrial electronics products market, the production volume
developed positively last year. The impact of developing markets was
also apparent in the globalising needs of industrial electronics
customers.  Management of the whole delivery chain, accuracy of
delivery and global material and component acquisition expertise were
emphasised in the manufacturing of industrial electronics products.

As demand and production focused on developing markets and lower-cost
countries, the relative share of Europe in Scanfil’s functions
contracted as well. In Europe, the production operations of the
Belgian plant were discontinued during the third quarter. A
preliminary agreement was concluded on the sale of the property of the
Belgian plant on 14 December 2006. It is anticipated that the sale
will be carried out in the first quarter of 2007 at an approximately
EUR 0.6 million higher price than the balance sheet value of the
property. Most of the production of the Oulu plant was discontinued
during the fourth quarter.

The expansion of the production facilities in the Estonian subsidiary
was completed and taken into use during the final quarter, and the
expansion of the Hungarian subsidiary will be taken into use during
the first quarter of 2007. Thanks to the facility and equipment
investments carried out in the Chinese Hangzhou subsidiary during the
year, the plant is capable of delivering significant volumes of
integrated and tested telecommunications technology enclosure systems.
The Chinese subsidiaries accounted for about 32% of the Group’s sales
(about 20% in 2005), including sales to the Group’s other plants.

On 31 December 2006, 70 (62) per cent of the company’s personnel
worked in foreign subsidiaries and 46 (37) per cent in China. The
proportion of people working in Europe of the entire personnel
contracted during the year, due to the reorganisation of production
implemented in Finland and Belgium. During the review period, the
company carried out statutory employer-employee negotiations in the
Sievi mechanics plant, the Oulu plant and the Belgian subsidiary,
Scanfil N.V.

On 14 November 2006, President Veli Torvinen announced that he will
resign for personal reasons. He will continue in his post until 14 May
2007. After the reviewed period the company’s Board of Directors has
appointed Mr Harri Takanen, MSc(Eng), as the new President. Harri
Takanen will take up his new duties on 15 May 2007.


The Group’s turnover in 2006 was EUR 241.4 (321.6) million,
representing decrease of 25% over the previous year.
Distribution of turnover based on the location of customers was as
follows: Finland 43 (42)%, rest of Europe 29 (40)%, Asia 25 (12)%, USA
1 (6)% and the others 2 (0)%

Operating profit for the review period totalled EUR 11.4 (27.3)
million, representing 4.7 (8.5)% of turnover. Net profit amounted to
EUR 8.2 (21.5) million, or 3.4 (6.7)% of turnover. Earnings per share
amounted to EUR 0.14 (0.36) and return on investment was 9.0 (18.6)%.

For the first quarter of 2006 has been recorded the non-recurring
expense item of EUR 7.6 million, relating to the discontinuation of
the Belgian subsidiary's production activities. In the third quarter a
fund reimbursement related to the voluntary group pension insurance
and the unused part of a cost provision related to material liability,
totalling EUR 0.8 million, were recognised as income.

In the final quarter, EUR 0.8 million was recognised as income related
to the calculation of fair value according to IFRS. EUR 0.8 million of
capital gains from sale of fixed assets were recorded, the main part
of which was recognised as income in the fourth quarter and was
generated from the sale of the fixed assets of the Belgian subsidiary.
In addition, an expense item of EUR 0.4 million was entered as a
warranty provision at the end of the year.
Operating profit excluding non-recurring items totalling EUR 5.6
million stood at EUR 16.9 million, representing 7.0% of turnover, and
earnings per share was EUR 0.23.

In the parent company an impairment of EUR 2.6 million was entered for
the shares of the Belgian subsidiary.

Owing to the structure of the company’s operations, the effects of
changes in exchange rates on the result were minimal. As growth shifts
to the Asian operations, the impact of fluctuations in the dollar
exchange rate on the company’s operations may increase.


The Group enjoys still a strong financial position. Liabilities
amounted to EUR 46.2 (66.7) million, EUR 38.7 (48.8) million of which
were non-interest-bearing and EUR 7.5 (17.9) million interest-bearing
Liquid cash assets totalled EUR 31.8 (37.8) million. The equity ratio
was 73.6 (66.5)% and gearing –19.1 (-15.2)%.

Cash flow from operations in the review period was positive at EUR
18.9 (36.8) million. Cash flow from investments was EUR –5.0 (-12.6)
million, and cash flow from funding stood at EUR –19.1 (-22.5)
million. Working capital was released during the financial period to
the amount of EUR 2.9 (5.4) million, long-term loans were amortised by
EUR 10.4 million and dividends for 2005 were paid to the amount of EUR
6.0 million.

Gross investments in fixed assets totalled EUR 8.5 (9.2) million, or
3.5 (2.9)% of turnover. The plant expansions and related machinery
acquisitions by the Estonian and Hungarian subsidiaries and the
machinery and equipment acquisitions by the Hangzhou subsidiary
account for most of the investments. During the financial period the
company sold its industrial property in Ylivieska.


On 30 March 2006 the Annual General Meeting decided according to the
Board of Directors’ proposal to authorize the Board of Directors to
decide on the acquisition of the Company’s own shares with
distributable assets and transfer of the Company’s own shares. Added
together, the number of acquired shares and of the shares already held
by the Company shall not exceed ten per cent (10%) of the Company’s
share capital and of the number of voting shares.

On 25 August 2006, Scanfil plc’s Board of Directors decided to
purchase a maximum of one (1) million shares of the Company on the
basis of the authorisation given by the Annual General Meeting

The Board of Directors has no existing share issue authorisations or
authorisations to issue convertible bonds or bonds with warrants.


On 31 December 2006, the Company owned a total of 2,000,000 own
shares, of which 1,000,000 were acquired between 4 September and 11
December 2006 through the Helsinki Stock Exchange for purposes defined
in the authorisation received by the Board of Directors at the Annual
General Meeting on 30 March 2006.
The acquisition value of the own shares acquired in 2006 was EUR
2,780,610 and the average price EUR 2.78/share. The acquisition value
of the 1,000,000 own shares acquired in 2005 was EUR 4,109,691 and the
average price EUR 4.11/share. The nominal value of all acquired own
shares totalled EUR 500,000, and they represented 3.3% of the
Company’s share capital and total number of votes.


The highest share price during the year was EUR 4.67 and the lowest
EUR 2.30. The share price at the end of the review period was EUR
2.37. A total of 20,400,591 shares were traded during the year,
corresponding to 33.6% of the total number of shares. The market value
of the shares on 31 December 2006 was EUR 143.9 million.


On  31  December  2006, the Scanfil Group consisted of parent  company
Scanfil  plc  (Sievi) and CPS Elektroniikka Inc (Tampere) in  Finland,
Scanfil  N.V.  in Belgium (Hoboken), Scanfil (Suzhou)  Co.,  Ltd.  and
Scanfil  (Hangzhou) Co., Ltd. in China, Scanfil Kft.  (Biatorbagy)  in
Hungary,  and  Scanfil Oü, (Pärnu) in Estonia.  The  Group  holds  the
entire share capital in all of its subsidiaries.

On 11 December 2006, the shareholders’ meeting of CPS Elektroniikka
Inc decided to place the company into voluntary liquidation to
dissolve the company.
The company has not engaged in any production activities since 30
April 2005.


At the end of the review period the Group employed 2,073 (2,302)
people, of whom 1444 (1,437) worked abroad. The Group employed an
average 2,213 (2,354) people during the year.


Dividend for 2006
The Board of Directors will propose to the Annual General Meeting that
a dividend of EUR 0.10 per share be paid for the financial year ended
31 December 2006, totalling EUR 5,871,427.00.

The Board proposes that the matching date for payment of dividend be
17 April 2007 and that the dividend is paid on 24 April 2007.


Scanfil plc’s Board of Directors appointed Mr Harri Takanen, MSc(Eng),
as the company’s new President. Harri Takanen has worked for the
company in different positions since 1994 and acts at the moment as
the Managing Director of Scanfil’s Chinese subsidiary Scanfil
(Hangzhou) Co., Ltd. He will take up his post on 15 May 2007, until
which time Veli Torvinen will continue as President.

At the beginning of February, Scanfil plc initiated statutory employer-
employee negotiations concerning its Äänekoski and Oulu plants, Group
administration and the salaried employees of its Sievi units due to
production and financial reasons and business restructuring. The goals
of the initiated statutory employer-employee negotiations are to
adjust the Finnish functions to the changed market conditions and to
improve cost-efficiency.  Once implemented, the planned actions are
estimated to have a positive impact on the Company’s performance.


Major restructurings in the telecommunications sector resulted in
weaker demand in the last quarter of 2006, and they are also expected
to affect demand in early 2007. The biggest companies in the sector
predict that the markets for telecommunication networks and related
services will grow somewhat in euros during the current year. The
possible increase in the service business of customer companies in the
sector may reduce the market growth available to Scanfil.

Tough price competition, market changes and the increase in the share
of deliveries of telecommunications network products with a simpler
and more inexpensive structure will continue in 2007, due to which the
turnover from this product group is expected to decrease in the
current year. Uncertainty in the market has increased and
predictability is extremely poor. Based on available forecasts,
Scanfil plc’s sales for 2007 are expected to fall short of the 2006
level. Profitability for the full year is estimated to be at a
satisfactory level.

Scanfil plc’s primary goals for 2007 are improving and maintaining
profitability as well as developing operations, taking into account
changes in the market and changing customer needs. In addition to
actions directed at profitability, the Company’s good financial
standing provides an opportunity to actively seek various means and
arrangements that will put Scanfil’s operations back on a growth
