In his Message from the President, Roger Johansson concludes that "the year 2011 commenced with rising demand in all of BE Group's markets. The positive development during the first half of the year, weakened after the summer. The explanation lies in an increased caution among customers due to uncertainty regarding developments in steel prices and in the economy in general."
In the outlook for 2012, Roger Johansson, says: "We are well-positioned for profitable growth through the ventures we have undertaken and the measures we implemented over the year. Our main priorities during 2012 will be to increase the yield from made investments and acquisitions, to turn Central Europe into profitability and to strengthen our positions in the Nordic region."
The printed Annual Report will be available from the first week of April 2012 and can be ordered via www.begroup.com or by calling +46 40 38 42 00.
