Wärtsilä estimates net sales and profitability for 2016 to be lower than previously expected

Wärtsilä revises its sales and profitability guidance for 2016, due to lower than anticipated power plant deliveries in the current year.

Based on delivery schedules, sales and profitability is expected to be concentrated towards the fourth quarter.

Previously Wärtsilä expected its net sales to grow by 0-5% and its profitability to be 12.5-13.0%.
