Thursday, 19 April 2012
Bearings manufacturer SKF reports earnings in line with expectations. CEO Tom Johnstone paints, however, an unexpectedly bright picture of the situation.

The net profit was Skr1341 million, compared with analysts' expectations for Skr1356 million and Skr1620 million in the first quarter last year.
Profit before tax was Skr1981 million, which was basically what analysts had expected in their compilation (Skr1978 million).
