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. Telekonference NKT afholder i dag kl. 09.30 en telekonference for investorer og analytikere, og den kan følges på www.nkt.dk. Den tilhørende præsentation vil være tilgængelig om kort tid.

Group Executive Director, Michael Hedegaard Lyng states: - Our third-quarter financial performance was satisfactory, based on organic growth and improved earnings in both Nilfisk and NKT Cables. Overall, the quarter represented a number of milestones for NKT, including implementation of a new organisation structure in Nilfisk to drive our growth ambitions, which also allows us to save EUR 35m, as well as NKT Cables’ acquisition of ABB HV Cables and divestment of non-core businesses in Automotive and China. Furthermore, the Board announced the intention to split NKT Holding into two separately listed entities. In the businesses our focus remains, however, on executing on daily operations to reach our full-year guidance. 2016 outlook revised Driven by the development in NKT Cables, NKT’s overall expectations for operational EBITDA margin (std. metal prices) are raised to approx. 9.6% against approx. 9.4% previously anticipated. Organic growth is adjusted to negative 2-3% against a previously anticipated flat organic growth, cf. page 18 in the Q3 2016 Interim Report. Nilfisk: 4% organic growth and operational EBITDA improved by 25% to EUR 26.6m. Roll-out of new organisational structure to secure growth and cost savings programme of EUR 35m In Q3, Nilfisk organic growth was driven by EMEA and the Americas and operational EBITDA margin was improved by 1.3%-points to 10.6%, due to increased gross margin. Implementation of a new organisational structure and business model to increase customer focus was on track. The cost savings programme with expected EUR 35m impact by 2019 was further detailed and implementation on track. NKT Cables: 1% organic growth and operational EBITDA increased by 39% to EUR 20.5m. Acquisition of ABB HV Cables and divestment of non-core businesses In Q3, the Projects business drove organic growth and operational EBITDA margin (std. metal prices) was improved by 3.0%-points to 10.4%. NKT Cables announced the acquisition of ABB HV Cables to enter the DC high-voltage market, while operations in China and the Automotive business were divested to focus on core business. NKT Photonics: Financial performance as expected. Satisfactory order intake and backlog NKT Photonics realised organic growth of -6%, which should be seen against a very strong Q3 2015. Sensing & Energy delivered a robust performance, which was offset by the remaining two segments. The integration of Fianium progressed to plan. Teleconference NKT will host a teleconference for investors and financial analysts at 09:30 CET today, and it can be accessed at www.nkt.dk. The presentation for the call will be available shortly after this release. To attend, please dial in from: Denmark: +45 3544 5583 UK: +44 203 194 0544 US: +1 855 269 2604

In NKT Cables, the improved margin was driven by both our Projects and Products businesses. In NKT Photonics, the Sensing & Energy segment in particular contributed to the positive development whereas in Nilfisk, the key drivers were increased revenue and improved gross margins in both EMEA and the Americas. The NKT Cables guidance covers the current business. An updated outlook for the company, including the ABB HV Cables activities will be provided when closing of the transaction is completed, which is expected in Q1 2017. Expected one-off costs related to the transaction and integration will be specified. To support growth above market level, Nilfisk expects to continue deploying front-end investments.

The acquisition of ABB HV Cables represents a milestone in the transformation of NKT Cables - closing of the transaction is expected in Q1 2017. To further focus the business, three non-strategic business segments were divested. NKT Photonics: Operational EBITDA margin up by 5.1%-points. Major step towards commercialisation. Operational EBITDA margin increased to 14.7% driven by the Sensing & Energy segment, improved product margins and economies of scale. Organic growth was 7%. Acquisition of Fianium was a significant step towards NKT Photonics becoming a leading industrial player and also, major OEM frame contracts were signed.
