Company Announcements

FLSmidth is continuously negotiating many potential contracts. To be considered binding, such contracts require not only signing but also exchange of down payment and guarantees.


Order backlog reduced by DKK 0.5bn as mentioned in half year report

26.10.2009
Company Announcement to the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority No. 19-2009, 26 October 2009

On 14 February 2008 FLSmidth announced that it had received a contract worth AUD 170m (approximately DKK 785m) with Aurox Resources Limited (Aurox) to supply a complete minerals processing plant and related port facilities for the treatment of magnetite iron ore - company announcement no. 7-2008.
The project execution commenced as planned, but due to the impact of the global financial crisis on Aurox' project funding, the project was put on hold earlier this year, and the parties have now agreed to terminate the remaining contract.
 
As a consequence of the termination, the order backlog of FLSmidth has been reduced by DKK 550m, which is the amount that was flagged as in increased risk of being cancelled in the half year report released on 17 August 2009. The termination will have no impact on the expected revenue and results for 2009.
 
For further information about the circumstances and agreements, please see the announcement issued by Aurox to the Australian Stock Exchange; http://www.asx.com.au/asx/research/companyInfo.do?by=asxCode&asxCode=AXO
