Denmark: FLSmidth has reported a 86% drop in its profit year-on-year to Euro5.77m for the first quarter of 2013, compared to Euro32.3m in 2012. The Danish engineering group blamed increased customer hesitation, market uncertainty and a lack of efficiency.

Its revenue increased by 17% to Euro758m in the first quarter of 2013 from Euro648m in 2012. However, order intake fell by 22% to Euro675m from Euro862m. Fewer large orders were signed in the fist quarter of 2013, while unannounced orders were stable. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation fell by 28% to Euro43.9m from Euro61.2m.

In its interim results FLSmidth stated that corrective actions were being developed and would be publicised in its second quarter report along with measures from the new CEO.
