Stock Exchange Releases
In September, demand for fireplace products in Tulikivi’s main
market areas was more sedate than expected. The Tulikivi Group had
sales of about EUR 52.5 million at the end of September (EUR 57.7
million in January-September 2006). The decline was largely due to
exports, but domestic sales also still fell short of the previous
year’s level. The strong decline in fireplace demand in Germany
impacts on exports of both fireplaces and lining stone products.
The order book on 30 September was EUR 7.9 (12.4) million.
Annual sales will thus be approximately 10 percent lower than last
year. Earnings will be satisfactory.
