Nils Arthur, President and CEO of ProfilGruppen says,

“The good profit and cash flow for 2007 result in a very strong financial
position for the Group.

An increased interest from the market in energy saving and climate related
environmental efforts, benefit the usage of light, strong and recyclable
extrusions in aluminium. My assessment is that this trend will continue.”


*For year 2006 the result after financial items was negatively affected by
one-off costs in the amount of MSEK 31.8 related to the, at that time, partly
