Half-year review 2020

Neles’ January-June 2020 half-year review was published on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 and is available on this web page and in our report archive.

January-June in brief

  • Solid underlying operative margins in the second quarter despite challenging Covid-19 pandemic situation
  • Oil and Gas as well as Pulp and Paper projects remained active, the Services business and Maintenance, Repairs and Operations-driven (MRO) business affected by mobility restrictions and lockdowns
  • Partial demerger of Metso was completed on June 30th, share trading continuing under Neles name on Nasdaq Helsinki on July 1st
  • Neles Board of Directors confirmed growth strategy and mid-term financial targets on July 1st

President and CEO Olli Isotalo:

During the first half of the year, the market activity was varied. We were successful in winning many important Pulp and Paper projects as well as Oil and Gas projects as evidenced in our increased order backlog. Our Services and MRO-driven business was negatively impacted by postponements in customers’ planned maintenance shut-downs, mobility restrictions and lockdowns.
