Annual Report 2005

April 7, 2006

Acceleration driven by consumer insight. In recent years we have transformed Electrolux from a production-focused industrial company to an innovative, pro-active market-driven group.

Attractive new products that match varying consumer needs and expectations are the drivers for the Group’s growth and long-term profitability. We are now the leader in our industry in terms of systematic development of new products based on consumer insight.

Our investments in building a strong, global Electrolux brand are beginning to pay off with stronger market positions and improved earnings.

Our formula for success comprises a continued fast pace of product development, marketing and brand building, combined with low costs for production, purchasing and distribution. This is how we’re going to keep building Electrolux.

The spin-off of our Outdoor Products operation – which the Board proposes to distribute to Electrolux shareholders under the name of Husqvarna – will enable us to intensify our efforts to ensure profitable growth.
