“As we communicated in mid-June, the marketplace overall has softened compared to what we originally anticipated for 2013,” commented Ron DeFeo, Terex Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The second quarter results reflect this lighter order environment overall, as our Cranes, Construction and Material Handling & Port Solutions (MHPS) segments all experienced lower revenues than originally expected. However, we do continue to see strong performance from our Aerial Work Platforms (AWP) business, and good operational execution by our Materials Processing business in a challenging environment. Overall by geography, North America continues to improve, but now at a slower pace. Europe remains challenging, particularly for our Cranes, Construction and MHPS segments, and the markets in the rest of the world remain mixed.”
