Hexagon's outlook for the year remains

15 September 2008

In response to the sharp fall in Hexagon's share price on Friday, Hexagon clarifies that its outlook for the year is unchanged.

Hexagon has seen a slowdown in September in construction related industries in Germany and France. It is too early to determine how Hexagon will be affected by the construction market's development.

"We are not immune to the market's development. However, by gaining market share and launching new products we can influence our development relative to the development we see on construction related markets in Western Europe", says Ola Rollén, CEO and President of Hexagon AB.

Hexagon's outlook for 2008 to increase earnings per share by 15 per cent remains unchanged.
