Due to the intended split of NKT A/S, Nilfisk is considered as discontinued operations and therefore a separate Q1 2017 Interim Report is issued (enclosed in this announcement). Group Executive Director Michael Hedegaard Lyng states: - Q1 2017 was eventful with completion of the acquisition of ABB HV Cables to create one of the leading high-voltage power cables companies in the world. We were satisfied with the first months of ownership and the integration process is on track. The Q1 2017 financial development of NKT was as expected, with a satisfactory increase in revenue and operational EBITDA. In Q1 2017, Nilfisk also performed well, with solid organic growth and a positive margin development. Finally, the intended split of NKT A/S into two separately listed entities is still expected to take place in 2nd half 2017.             2017 outlook reconfirmed The NKT 2017 financial outlook comprises separate guidance for each business unit and the guidance provided 11 April 2017 is confirmed, cf. Company Announcement No. 8 and Q1 2017 Interim Report page 3. NKT (formerly NKT Cables): Milestone achieved with the completion of ABB HV Cables acquisition. Operational EBITDA margin increased to 9.6% In Q1 2017, NKT increased revenue by EUR 22m to EUR 185.2m (std. metal prices) driven by the acquired ABB HV Cables activities. Organic growth of -8% reflects timing of revenue. The development in the high-voltage offshore business was satisfactory with solid execution of various projects. Operational EBITDA was EUR 17.8m, up EUR 5.7m from Q1 2016 driven by the acquired activities, as well as positive development in the remaining part of the business. NKT Photonics: All-time high sales pipeline and financial performance as expected In Q1 2017, NKT Photonics recorded revenue of EUR 7.5m, up from EUR 7.2m in Q1 2016. Organic growth was -18% due to quarterly fluctuations in revenue. Return to positive organic growth is expected in both Q2 and 1st half 2017. EBITDA amounted to EUR -2.1m due to an increased cost base and number of employees. The sales pipeline reached an all-time high level. Nilfisk: Solid organic growth and improved margins. Continued roll-out of Accelerate+ strategy Nilfisk reported organic growth of 5% in Q1 2017 driven by the Americas and EMEA. EBITDA before special items increased to EUR 35.1m from EUR 27.2m in Q1 2016, equivalent to a margin improvement of 2.3%-points due to better gross margin and a decreased overhead cost ratio. Roll out of the Accelerate+ strategy continued, positively impacting the cost base. Nilfisk’s new CEO Hans Henrik Lund is still expected to join the company no later than August 2017.

Koncerndirektør, Michael Hedegaard Lyng udtaler: - Det finansielle resultat for tredje kvartal var tilfredsstillende og var baseret på organisk vækst og øget indtjening i både Nilfisk og NKT Cables. Overordnet bestod kvartalet af en række milepæle for NKT inklusive implementering af en ny organisationsstruktur i Nilfisk som skal drive vores vækstambitioner og som samtidig gør det muligt at spare EUR 35 mio., kombineret med NKT Cables’ køb af ABB HV Cables og salg af ikke-kerneforretningerne Automotive og Kina. Samtidig annoncerede bestyrelsen intention om at splitte NKT Holding i to selvstændige, børsnoterede enheder. I forretningerne fastholder vi imidlertid fokus på at eksekvere på den daglige forretning for at nå vores mål for helåret. NKT Cables: 1% organisk vækst og operationelt EBITDA steg med 39% til EUR 20,5 mio. Køb af ABB HV Cables  og salg af ikke-kerneforretninger I 3. kvartal drev Projects-forretningen organisk vækst og operationel EBITDA-margin (std. metalpriser) som blev forbedret med 3,0 %-point til 10,4%. NKT Cables annoncerede køb af ABB HV Cables for at få adgang til markedet for DC højspændingskabler, mens aktiviteterne i Kina og Automotive-forretningen blev solgt for at fokusere på kerneforretningen. NKT Photonics: Forventet finansielt resultat. Tilfredsstillende ordretilgang og -bog NKT Photonics realiserede -6% organisk vækst, hvilket skal ses i forhold til et meget stærkt 3. kvartal 2015. Sensing & Energy leverede et solidt resultat, som blev opvejet af de to øvrige segmenter. Integrationen af Fianium følger planen.

According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, "Fiber Laser Market by Type, and by Application - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014 - 2022" the fiber laser market is expected to reach $3,113 million by 2022 from $1,443 million in 2015, growing at CAGR of 11.7% from 2016 to 2022. Ultrafast fiber laser segment dominated the market with more than half of the market in terms of revenue in 2015. Summary of the fiber laser market report can be accessed on the website at https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/fiber-laser-market High beam quality, lower cost of ownership, and eco-friendly technology majorly drive the fiber laser market. The growth in trend of green manufacturing and increase in concern of material manufacturers regarding the impact of their product on environment across various industrial sectors has made fiber lasers an attractive choice for cutting and marking applications. Easily automated and energy efficient fiber laser solutions are increasingly replacing the traditional methods employed for machine marking, such as chemical etching and ink based printing. According to Eswara Prasad, Team Lead, Chemicals & Materials at Allied Market Research, "QCW fiber lasers have shown tremendous growth in last three years substituting traditional YAG lasers which were large, un-reliable, and inefficient, owing to its unique technology and high peak power." Fiber lasers offer excellent beam quality and does not require any complicated optics for beam delivery. They don't contain mirrors or moving parts within the light generating source and offer high wall plug efficiency and ultra-compact footprint, which results in low operating costs and minimal maintenance requirements. Higher speeds and high electrical efficiency at relatively lower running costs boost the demand for fiber lasers across various industrial sectors. Though reduced processing speed while cutting thicker materials and undesired pulse pedestals & nonlinear optical effects restrain the market growth, increase in automobile and mobile electronics applications offer a great potential for the growth of fiber laser market globally. Ultrafast fiber laser segment accounted for more than three-fifths share of the global fiber laser market in 2015. This was attributed to its properties such as compact size, high beam quality, wall plug efficiency, and reliability. In addition, ultrafast lasers are manufactured using the technique of chirped pulse application, which suppresses the undesired pulse pedestals and nonlinear optical effects. Ultrafast laser segment is sub segmented into picosecond fiber laser and femtosecond fiber laser. Femtosecond fiber laser accounted for around three-fourths share of the world ultrafast fiber laser market revenue in 2015. High power application is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.4% in terms of revenue owing to employment of fiber lasers in cost effective cutting and welding applications. Marking accounts for the second largest share in terms of revenue, attributing to FDA requirement for marking unique identification number on all medical, dental, and surgical devices for patient's safety and trade way marking policy. According to Eswara Prasad, Team Lead, Chemicals & Materials at Allied Market Research, "key players R&D investments with regards to use of fiber lasers as a milling tool in aerospace industry to expand the potential for fiber lasers market." Asia-Pacific and North America collectively contributed more than two-thirds of the market revenue in 2015. In the same year, Asia-Pacific dominated the market, in terms of revenue, owing to increased demand of fiber lasers in electronics and automotive industry. The prominent players profiled in this report include Amonics Ltd. (China), Apollo Instruments Inc. (U.S.), Coherent Inc. (U.S.), IPG Photonics Corporation (U.S.), Jenoptik Laser GmbH (Germany), Keopsys Group (France), NKT Photonics A/S (Denmark), Quantel Group (France), ROFIN-SINAR Technologies Inc.
