8 August 2023, Copenhagen, Denmark

Today FLSmidth announces its preliminary and unaudited financial results for Q2 and H1 2023. As a result of a better-than-expected Mining Service performance and integration of Mining Technologies, our financial guidance for the full year 2023 is raised. The updated Mining guidance now reflects an expected dilutive effect on the full year 2023 Adjusted Mining EBITA margin from Mining Technologies of less than 2%-points (previously around 2%-points).

As consequence of the raised Mining guidance, Group guidance for revenue, Adjusted EBITA margin and EBITA margin are updated accordingly.

Market outlook
Following a strong 2022, we expect mining market activity levels in 2023 to remain largely stable versus 2022 with some delays in larger investment decisions, mainly within Products.

The short- to midterm outlook for the cement industry is increasingly impacted by a slow-down in market demand.
