Uutechnic Group Lowers its Estimate for the Operating Profit for 2016
Uutechnic Group estimates its operating profit for the year 2016 to be lower than previously announced due to lower than expected result of a major AP-Tela Oy’s project. The Impact of the project to other manufacturing has also been significant. The project will be delivered to the customer as agreed despite the challenges in manufacturing of a new product.
Uutechnic Group estimates that the impact of the project will reduce Group’s operating profit by approx. 0.8 million euros and turn AP-Tela Oy’s operating result to negative. Previously Uutechnic Group announced Group’s operating profit to be approx. 2.2 – 2.4. Million euros. Uutechnic Group is still estimating that the operating profit of the other subsidiaries will be positive and Group’s turnover will be over 35.0 million euros.
