Oce Announces Third Quarter 2008 Results


In the current economic turmoil we refrain from giving an outlook for our full year income. We did however start the fourth quarter of 2008 with an order backlog comparable with last year. Continued cost savings are expected to amount to Euro 21 million in the fourth quarter. Supported by a strong focus on improving all working capital elements and by the anticipated sale of finance lease receivables, we expect a positive free cash flow for the 2008 full year.
