Sandvik Sales Down 6% in 2Q

Profit fell 18 percent for the quarter.

Swedish manufacturer Sandvik reported sales for the second quarter of SEK 22 billion (US$3.2 billion), a 6 percent decrease over the same period a year ago. Profit declined 18 percent to SEK 1.5 billion (US$219.8 million).

For the first six months, sales were SEK 42.8 billion (US$6.3 billion), down 5.1 percent from the prior-year period. Profit for the period fell 9 percent to SEK 3 billion (US$439.3 million).

“Changed metal prices contributed positively to second-quarter earnings, but were more than offset by negative currency effects and acquisition-related costs,” said Sandvik’s President and CEO Olof Faxander.
