SCANFIL PLC’S CHANGES THE OUTLOOK FOR FIRST QUARTER

Due to the damages as ordered in favour of Scanfil EMS Oy the court of arbitration the operating profit for the first quarter is estimated to be positive. Damages do not change the outlook for the whole year 2012.

According to Scanfil’s earlier view, full-year turnover and operating profit will decrease clearly compared to 2011 (Scanfil EMS Oy group’s turnover for 2011 was EUR 210.8 million and operating profit EUR 9.1 million). The result for the first quarter will be negative due to factors such as the weak seasonal demand, expected adaptation costs and the demerger and listing costs. Full-year operating profit is, however, expected to be clearly profitable.
