Management assessment: If the during Q1 2017 acquired companies, Avanti Wind Systems and Facade Access Group, had been fully consolidated by 1 January 2016, order intake growth during the period January-September 2017 would have been 3% and revenue growth would have been 8% compared to the same period 2016.

*The adjustment relates to the fair value on acquired inventory in Avanti. Normally this fair value effect impacts the income statement (as a cost) during the period when the inventory is sold. However, as the inventory acquired already has been sold the full effect of MSEK 17 has been recorded as a cost in the third quarter.
