  2. 2. SKF – the knowledge engineering company The SKF vision is “To equip the world with SKF knowledge”. To take the knowledge from over 100 years of operation to develop and deliver products, services and solutions which enable customers to develop their business successfully and profitably. SKF knowledge can be defined as the combination of the following three dimensions. The geographic dimension – global and local presence SKF is a global company with a local presence which has primarily been in place since the early years of the SKF Group. Wherever customers are located local expertise, supported by global industrial specialists and technical experts, combine the required SKF skills to be able to make a specific offer for customers which meets their local needs. The global experts draw upon knowledge and successes from similar industries worldwide. The customer dimension – industries and segments SKF’s customers can be found in very many industries and industry segments, currently defined as around 40 specialized segments. Each customer and segment has different technical and commercial challenges. Working in so many different industries enables SKF to develop specific products and services for each industry and take knowledge from one industry and apply it to another industry. The competence dimension – technology platforms SKF’s five technology platforms are Bearings and units, Seals, Mechatronics, Services, and Lubrication Systems. SKF’s specialist teams in each platform work closely with the segments and sales organization to provide advanced integrated solutions for meeting the customers’ needs in developing new products, to improve their production efficiency and improve their competitiveness and profitability. Using all three dimensions to build customer value is what SKF call “The power of knowledge engineering”. Financial objectives and strategy Financial targets SKF’s long-term financial targets are: • operating margin level of 12% Operating margin Changes in sales Return on capital • annual sales growth in local currencies of 6-8% in local currency employed • return on capital employed of 24% Aquisitions /Divestments Organic growth Strategy % % Y-o-Y % SKF’s business strategy for achieving long-term profitable growth 12.9 12.6 24.9 20 12.2 24.0 15 30 23.0 and attaining financial targets includes: 21.9 10.4* 10.8 13.2 15 • keeping a clear and dedicated customer focus 10 20 11.3* 7.5* 7.3* 10 5.7 7.1 • developing new products, solutions and services with higher 9.1 5 10 -19.0 added value which enable customers to improve their efficiency 5 and performance while lowering their total cost 0 0 0 05 06 07 08 09 05 06 07 08 09 05 06 07 08 09 • improving price quality by applying the SKF platform and segment * Excluding income from the * Excluding effect approach to deliver value to customers previously jointly controlled from sale of • strengthening the product portfolio through greater investment company Oy Ovako Ab Oy Ovako Ab 2005: 10.4% in R&D and through acquisitions 2006: 10.1% • focusing on rapidly expanding segments and regions • reducing capital employed and fixed costs • attracting, retaining and developing the right people Shares and shareholders SKF Geographic ownership SKF’s A and B shares have been quoted on the NASDAQ OMX Europe excl.
