Business Review

Performance

While sales and revenues remained under pressure from weak commodity prices and slowing economic growth in developing countries, our financial performance was helped through cost management, restructuring actions and operational execution. Our product quality remained at high levels; we gained market position for machines for the fifth year in a row; inventory levels declined and our safety levels continued to be world class. We stayed focused in the right areas by delivering solid cash flow, maintaining a strong balance sheet and credit rating and increasing the dividend.
