Risks and business uncertainties

In the Power Plants business, uncertainty in the financial markets may impact the timing of bigger projects.

The business environment for the shipping and shipbuilding industry is challenging and concerns over the global economy continue to cause uncertainty. The traditional merchant segments remain under pressure, as the industry waits to see how trade conditions develop in 2013.

Increasing risks in the financial markets may have a negative impact on Services' order intake. The challenging conditions in the marine merchant markets are also seen as a potential risk.
