Solid financial performance
2006 is the third consecutive year in which Ericsson has reported good sales growth and best-in-class operating margin. Cash flow before financial investing activities was SEK -2.6 billion. Excluding major acquisitions/divestitures, we generated however a healthy cash flow from operations of SEK 12.2 billion. The dividend has increased over each of the past three years.
We are gaining market share in mobile and fixed networks as well as in services. Our professional services business is experiencing particularly strong growth and generating a return on capital employed well above the group average. Moreover, we anticipate that our Sony Ericsson joint venture, our industry-leading patent portfolio and our newly-formed multimedia business unit will increasingly contribute favorably to our overall financial performance.
Our vision is to be the prime driver in an all-communicating world.
This means a world in which all people can use voice, data, images and video to share ideas and information whenever and wherever they want.
