Hexagon announces cost saving measures

29 April 2020

In the light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hexagon has initiated measures to accelerate operational efficiencies to support its long-term financial objectives.

In the short-term, Hexagon has implemented various actions that include shorter work weeks, furloughs and reductions in discretionary spending. As a long-term measure, a company-wide cost savings programme has been initiated which includes structural changes – from reallocating resources to new business opportunities to optimising office locations worldwide – and work force reductions that reflect more enduring changes in market demand and revenue mix. Overall, Hexagon will take a one-off charge of approximately -135 MEUR during the second quarter 2020, with the majority impacting cash flow, which is expected to result in annualised cost savings of approximately 125-150 MEUR by the end of 2020.

Hexagon will release its Interim Report for the first quarter 2020 at 13:00 CET today. A combined telephone conference and live webcast concerning the report will be presented by President and CEO Ola Rollén at 14:00 CET the same day.
