The production of recreation vehicles also continued to grow in Europe and North America. PKC's Wiring Harnesses business continued to grow, by about 15% over the previous quarter. Our customers' volume of orders received during the second quarter for trucks remained at the same level as deliveries. The profitability of the Wiring Harnesses business fell in comparison with the previous quarter as a result of an increase in material and manufacturing costs and a drop in some product sales prices. Production transfers to lower cost factories will be continued according to plan. Deliveries in the Electronics business remained at the level of the previous quarter. Deliveries from Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) continued to grow, but deliveries from Original Design Manufacturing (ODM) fell during the first half of the year. As a result of weakened profitability, special measures to improve profitability will be targeted at the Electronics business. In line with our strategy, our aim is not only organic growth but also through acquisitions.' OPERATING ENVIRONMENT Wiring Harness business European heavy-duty trucks' markets strengthened during the report period. During the first half of the year, the registrations of heavy-duty trucks increased in Europe (the EU countries, Switzerland and Norway) by 56% over the comparison period. All in all, about 120,000 heavy trucks were registered during the first half of the year. During the second quarter, a total of almost 62,000 new heavy-duty trucks were registered. During the second quarter, the number of vehicle orders received by our customers was at about the same level as the number of vehicles delivered to their customers. Deliveries for the full year are forecast to increase to 230,000 - 250,000 vehicles. In Brazil during the first half of the year, our key customers' heavy truck deliveries increased by 20% over the comparison period. The vehicle orders received by our customers were 16% less than volume of customer deliveries during the second quarter, which indicates a turn in growth. The changes in emissions regulations scheduled to enter into force at the end of this year are expected to increase production towards the end of the year. In 2010, about 110,000 heavy-duty trucks were registered in Brazil. The industry expects registrations over the full year to increase by about 10% over the previous year. Deliveries for heavy-duty trucks in North America increased during the first half of the year by approximately 45% compared to the comparison period totalling approximately 93,000 vehicles. Truck manufacturers combined orderbook was about 125,000 heavy duty trucks at the end of June. Deliveries for the full year are forecast to be 180,000-250,000 vehicles. PKC's delivery volumes for recreation vehicle wiring harnesses increased in the first half of the year in North America by 30% over the corresponding period the previous year.

Production volumes of forestry equipment in Europe increased during the first half of the year by 40% over the comparison period the previous year. Although PKC Group does not have its own wiring harness production in Asia, growing export to Asia by our customers is supporting the growth of PKC's production volumes. Electronics business Demand for electronic subcontracting services remained at the level of the previous quarter in PKC's key markets. The availability of electronic components improved. Deliveries by PKC's Electronics business increased over the comparison period, but failed to reach the level of the previous quarter on account of the postponement of certain customer projects.

Under the share purchase agreement, PKC Group's subsidiaries shall purchase all shares in SEGU Systemelektrik GmbH (Germany), SEGU Polska Sp. z o.o. (Poland) and TZOV HBM Kabel Corp (Ukraine). The closing of the acquisition was subject to fulfillment of customary terms including Ukrainian competition authority approval. The requirements of closing have been fulfilled and PKC gained control of the acquired companies on April 30, 2011, which is also the day of consolidation. SEGU companies and PKC's Polish unit will form a business unit servicing the Central European markets with annual sales of about hundred million and about 2,500 employees. In addition to access to interesting new OEMs, the acquisition of SEGU companies will bring a strategically important footprint in Germany as well as benefit of scale and increased credibility for PKC. SHORT-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES The public deficit and high indebtedness of many European countries and the United States may weaken economic growth and availability of financing for investment goods. Due to the global growth in industrial production, the prices and availability of raw materials and components may develop in an unfavourable direction. This might increase PKC's processing and freight costs during this year. A potential weakening of the euro against the Polish zloty and the Russian rouble as well as the potential weakening of the USD against the Mexican peso may increase PKC's processing costs. The principles, objectives and organisation of the company's risk management as well as key risk areas are described in the risk management section of the Corporate Governance guidelines, which are available on the company's website at www.pkcgroup.com. OUTLOOK FOR THE FUTURE During the first half of the year, the customers of PKC's Wiring Harnesses segment received more new orders than the average level the previous year. PKC expects that net sales of the Wiring Harnesses business will grow in comparison with the previous year. During the first half of the year, sales of customers of the Electronics segment increased over the average level of the previous year. PKC expects that the net sales of the Electronics business will grow in comparison with the previous year.

BUSINESS COMBINATIONS PKC Group signed on 28 February 2011 an agreement for the purchase of shares in the Segu companies. The ownership and control have been transferred to PKC Group on 30 April 2011, which is also the date of consolidation. The acquisition cost is calculated on the basis of the Segu companies' preliminary balance sheet as per 30 April 2010 prepared, essentially, in accordance with IFRS and the PKC Group's accounting principles. The preliminary goodwill of EUR 0.1 million arising from the acquisition is mainly attributable to the acquired workforce and economies of scale and synergies expected from combining the operations of Segu and PKC Group. None of the goodwill recognized for the Segu companies is tax deductible. The following table summarizes the consideration paid for Segu companies and the amounts of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed recognized at the acquisition date. The below mentioned acquisition consideration and the fair values at 30 June 2011 are preliminary as the finalisation of the acquisition cost calculation is still ongoing. Consideration at 30 April 2011 (EUR million) Cash 13.7 Total consideration transferred 13.7 The assets and liabilities arising from the acquisition are as follows (EUR million) Property, plant and equipment 11.6 Intangible assets 2.8 Inventories 8.0 Trade and other receivables 6.1 Cash and cash equivalents 0.5 Non-current assets held for sale 0.4 Total assets 29.4 Provisions 0.2 Retirement benifit obligation 0.3 Interest-bearing liabilities 5.7 Trade and other liabilities 8.8 Deferred tax liabilities 0.8 Total liabilities 15.8 Total identifiable net assets 13.6 Goodwill 0.1 The fair value of the acquired identifiable intangible assets of EUR 2.8 million (including customer relationships and software) is preliminary pending receipt of the final valuations for those assets. The fair value of current trade receivables and other receivables is EUR 6.1 million and includes trade receivables with a fair value of EUR 2.7 million. The fair value of trade receivables does not include any significant risk. A building in Germany has been presented as a non-current asset held for sale as agreed in pursuance of the Segu acquisition. The sale is expected to be completed by 30 September 2011. The total acquisition-related costs are estimated to approximate EUR 0.8 million. Acquisition-related cost included in other operating expenses in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income amount to EUR 0.4 million for the year ended 31 December 2010 and EUR 0.4 million for the 6 months ended 30 June 2011. The net sales included in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income since 30 April 2011 contributed by Segu companies was EUR 7.9 million. Segu companies also contributed profit of EUR 0.4 million over the same period. Had the Segu companies been consolidated from 1 January 2011, the consolidated statement of comprehensive income would show net sales of EUR 220.7 million and profit of EUR 14.5 million. 4.
