It was another good quarter for Marel. Revenues from core business totalled 136.1 mln, an increase of 5.6% compared to the previous quarter and 26.9% compared to Q2 2009. For the second quarter in a row, the company delivered on its long-term target of a 10-12% return on revenues. It is expected that the Q3 results will be marked by the summer holiday period, when business activity is traditionally at a lower level. However, Marel fully expects to reach its target of 10-12% return on revenues for the year as a whole.
