ASPOCOMP GROUP’S GUIDANCE FOR Q2 OUTLOOK
Aspocomp estimates that the Q2 2005 net sales will be more than 10% lower than
the Q1 2005 net sales. The reason for decreased sales is mainly the present
product mix of Aspocomp’s Finnish PCB and Modules plants and lower delivery
volumes compared to Q1 2005. EPS will be negative as guided earlier.
Group net sales is estimated to increase during the second half of the year
compared to first half of the year but the annual net sales will be lower than
last year and EPS will be clearly negative.
For further information, please contact CEO Maija-Liisa Friman,
tel. +358 400 488 932.
