President and CEO Eero Hautaniemi:

The third quarter invoicing in the Services business grew in line with the market, and profitability developed well in all operating countries. In the Consumer business our growth was weaker, but the sales mix continued to developpositively. We have established eight new pharmacies this year, and there are some to be opened in the fourth quarter as well. The profitability of the Consumer business declined due to the establishment costs.

We developed Oriola-KD according to our strategy; the acquisition of PharmaService complemented the Healthcare business with dose dispensing in Finland, and the acquisition of Farenta strengthened our Services offering to pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies.

Impact of new ESMA guidelines

New ESMA (European Securities and Markets Authority) guidelines on Alternative Performance Measures (APMs) are effective for the financial year 2016. Oriola-KD presents APMs to reflect the underlying business performance and to enhance comparability between financial periods. APMs should not be considered as a substitute for measures of performance in accordance with the IFRS. As of Q1 2016, Oriola-KD relabels the previously referenced "excluding non-recurring items" with "adjusted ". Reporting segments' operating profit is reported excluding adjustment items . In addition Oriola-KD uses "invoicing" as the measure to describe the business volume. The reconciliation of the alternative performance measurements to performance measurements defined by IFRS are presented at the end of this interim report.
