Report on the first quarter, 2005

President's comment:

"Sandvik's earnings and sales continue to develop strongly. Profit after financial items rose 25%, with sales increasing 14%. Demand during the period was favorable, with high growth rates in Asia and NAFTA. During the first quarter, order intake rose by 14% in price and volume, and thus the Group's growth has exceeded 10% for five consecutive quarters. Growth in Sandvik Mining and Construction continues to be favored by very high demand for equipment for the mining industry," says Lars Pettersson, Sandvik's President and CEO.
