***Last four quarters' EBITDA
Cargotec's CEO Mika Vehviläinen: Strong development in orders received
Cargotec's second quarter of 2018 was strong with regard to orders received. Orders received grew in Kalmar and Hiab in the second quarter and were 23 percent higher than in the comparison period. Our sales were almost at the previous year's level, but restructuring costs had a significant negative impact on earnings per share. We proceeded according to our strategy in shaping our portfolio by divesting Kalmar Rough Terrain Center and Siwertell, both of which are outside Kalmar's core areas.
We continued to implement our strategy with determination. I am particularly pleased with the service business development in the second quarter, as we were able to increase the orders received there by 16 percent. The performance supports our key strategic goal of achieving EUR 1.5 billion service and software sales in 3-5 years. We also progressed with digitalisation and leadership, our two other strategic focus areas. During the second quarter, we developed a number of solutions that utilise artificial intelligence, as well as advanced analytics to improve eco-efficiency, preventive maintenance and crane balancing, for example. In leadership, we took steps to continuously improving team climates.
One of the highlights during this quarter was Kalmar's agreement to deliver an advanced automation solution to Sydney, Australia, valued at approximately 80 million euros. The order is particularly significant as it is the world's first fully automated intermodal solution for an inland terminal. In addition, Kalmar will deliver a unique digitalised container handling solution with fully autonomous equipment, software and services to Yara's Porsgrunn facility in Norway. The solution enables autonomous, cost-efficient and emissions-free operations of the Yara Birkeland container ship. These orders highlight the technical advancement of Kalmar's solutions and tell about the success of our investments in the automation development.
During the quarter, we took major steps also in sustainability. In May, we announced Kalmar's commitment to reduce emissions in cargo and material handling operations by fostering eco-efficient technologies. According to the commitment, Kalmar's full offering will be available as electrically powered versions by 2021. We believe that our strong investments in eco-efficient technologies will give us a significant competitive advantage in the future, when both our customers and legislation increasingly require low-emission solutions.
