Terex Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

While quoting activity for mobile cranes has been stable, the Cranes segment backlog has been negatively impacted by certain European macro-economic factors including capital markets tightening and declining government spending, affecting crawler and all-terrain cranes specifically. This was partially offset by continued strength in orders from North and South America, Australia and the Middle East.

MHPS backlog decreased due to lower Material Handling orders. This was largely offset by strength in Terex Port Solutions. Components of the large order related to the European port projects announced in the second quarter of 2012, which will be delivered next year starting in the second half of 2013, have started to be included in the Company’s reported backlog.

The Company’s MP segment also experienced continued order weakness in Europe as financing and end market demand are still challenging and have caused dealers to delay the replenishment of their historically low inventories. The Company has also seen some weakening of demand for MP mobile equipment in North America. This was partially offset by increased order activity from Australia, the Middle East and Latin America from small mines and aggregate producers in those regions.

The Glossary contains further details regarding backlog.
