Comment from the CEO

Strong signs of growth in New Cavotec

The second quarter was characterized by a high activity level and many high quality break through orders in our ports and maritime business, with current as well as new customers and in new fast growing geographies. As a result, the order backlog in New Cavotec increased by 19.0% compared to Q121. The quality of the order backlog is high, including a series of orders with a total value of EUR 5 million that we signed during the quarter to equip the world's largest new-build container ships with ShorePower systems; a breakthrough MoorMaster order in Japan -- the first of its kind in the Far-East; a repeat order for two MoorMaster(TM) systems from leading Norwegian electrical ferry operator Fjord 1 and, after the end of the quarter, an order with Port of Stockholm for the first automated mooring system in Sweden.

All those installations will lead to reduced CO2 emissions by up to 90%. This means that we play a crucial role in the decarbonization of the maritime industry. It is truly encouraging to experience the widespread interest in our technology and its growing use around the world. In addition, many of the recent orders, such as the order in the Far East and in Sweden, lay the foundation for a wider adoption in those and the neighboring markets.

As for revenues, we are still feeling the effect the pandemic has had on the order intake in 2020. Revenues decreased -13.7% to EUR 25.8 million versus the same period last year. However, despite this, our EBIT margin adjusted for investments in our future growth grew to 5.2% versus 3.6% a year ago.

We have long recognized that one of the biggest obstacles to greater port automation is perceived complexity and upfront investment. In the beginning of July, we therefore launched MoorMaster-as-a-Service -- the world's first subscription-based automated mooring service. This is one of the maritime industry's first product-as-a-service offerings. Under a MoorMaster as a Service contract, Cavotec enables customers to benefit from the productivity of MoorMaster with zero upfront investment and a full performance guarantee. Cavotec installs the hardware and covers all of the maintenance costs in a fully managed service. We're also setting up a Service 'Command Centre' that will monitor and optimise existing and new MoorMaster systems around the clock. Our customers will appreciate this reliable and simple way of accessing the market-leading MoorMaster technology and for us as a company it leads to longer customer relationships and a higher degree of recurring revenue.

The process to divest the Airports business is ongoing and expected to be finalized during 2021. Airports' order backlog increased 1.7% compared to Q121 to EUR 28.5 million. However, demand for both new build and service is expected to increase, due to expected increased travelling after the pandemic. Revenues decreased -17.7% to EUR 10.0 million. The decrease is mainly explained by previously delayed orders due to the pandemic. EBIT decreased to 0.3 EUR million (1.3), corresponding to a margin of 2.6% (11.0%).

On May 12, we announced our ambition to further leverage our strong position in the fast-growing market for electrification and automation of ports around the world, including a EUR 20 million investment over the next five years in technology, engineering, and business development. The activities to deliver on our plan are certainly high, and we are seeing signs every day of how former niche markets of electrification now rapidly are becoming mass markets in which Cavotec plays an important role.
