 Jaakko Eskola, President and Ceo: "A solid fourth quarter and continued growth in service volumes supported us in reaching our targets for the year 2015. Net sales grew by 5% and profitability reached 12.2%. Furthermore, the quarterly order intake in the equipment businesses improved sequentially towards year end. Given the challenging operating environment we can be pleased with our performance.” 
 Services' development was clearly the highlight of the year, with double digit growth in both orders and sales. Our success was driven by a focused sales approach and an enhanced value proposition, as well as by the increasing willingness of our customers to invest in performance optimising services. We will work actively to ensure the continued development of our offering in 2016. Another key focus area will be cash flow development, which this year was negatively affected by the timing of power plant deliveries.
