Organic growth of -1.1% for the branded professional business

During Q2 Nilfisk experienced headwind in key markets, particularly a weakening economy in EMEA. This affected the performance. As a response to the changing economic environment, we initiated measures to reduce our overhead costs and re-prioritize our investments. We put increased focus on our cash generation, focusing on working capital optimization and capex. Revenue growth In Q2 2019 the Nilfisk branded professional business posted organic growth of -1.1%, negatively impacted by EMEA and APAC with -1.5% and -4.4% organic growth respectively. The Americas posted 0.4% organic growth in Q2 2019. In the remaining business, Consumer realized organic growth of -25.8% and Private label realized -9,5% organic growth, which collectively led to organic growth for the total business of -4.4% in Q2. Divestments in 2018 impacted the total growth by -6.2% while foreign exchange rates (primarily USD related) positively impacted the total growth by 1.5%. As a result, total reported growth in Q2 2019 was -9.1% and revenue decreased by 25.9 mEUR to 258.6 mEUR. Organic growth EMEA Americas APAC Nilfisk branded professional business

For the first six months of the year, organic growth was -1.8% for the total business positively impacted by growth in the branded professional business of 0.7%. Divestments carried out in 2018 had an effect of -6.5% and foreign exchange rates had a positive effect (mainly driven by USD) of 1.5% for the first six months of the year. Total reported growth was -6.8% and revenue was 505.2 mEUR for the first six months of the year against 542.0 mEUR in the first six months of the prior year. In EMEA, a weakening economy impacted the industrial segment across the region, and the German and Nordic businesses in general, leading to organic growth of -1.5% in Q2 2019. Other mature markets such as France, Benelux and the UK continued to deliver positive albeit low organic growth. Overall growth within EMEA was negatively impacted by the Nilfisk FOOD business, which in Q2 2018 was positively impacted by a large one-time order. Excluding impact from this one-time order, underlying organic growth in EMEA was -0.4% and -0.5% for the branded professional business in total. In Americas organic growth in Q2 2019 was 0.4% helped by solid growth in Latin America and Canada, whereas organic growth in the US was negative.

be positive in Q2, albeit at a lower rate compared to previous quarters. The trade dispute between the US and China was a contributing factor to this development. For the first six months of the year, organic growth in the Nilfisk branded professional business was 0.7%. Both EMEA and Americas contributed to the growth with organic growth rates of 1.0% and 1.7% respectively. EMEA, however, was impacted by the weakening economy in Q2 as described above. APAC posted organic growth of -3.7% for the first six months of the year. In the remaining business, Consumer posted organic growth of -25.8% in Q2 2019 and -17.3% in the first six months of 2019. Market conditions were challenging throughout the period and the Consumer business finished the high season with a continued negative trend in EMEA. The negative performance was primarily related to the high pressure washer category, which is more seasonal than the vacuum cleaner category. The Private label business posted organic growth of -9.5% in Q2 and organic growth of -8.0% for the first six months of the year. The performance was in line with expectations. Gross margin The gross margin for Q2 increased by 1.3 percentage points compared to Q2 prior year and came to 44.1%. The increase was to a large extent driven by the efforts to simplify the business, such as pruning of product platforms, consolidation of production footprint and in particular divestments of lower margin businesses. Procurement benefits, mix effects and price increases as well as a one-off benefit also contributed positively. Increasing raw material costs along with tariffs impacting products sold and produced in the US had the opposite effect.

APAC was affected by low performance in Australia in particular leading to growth of -4.4% in Q2 2019. In China, growth continued to Q2 IN TERIM REPORT 2019 | 5

For the first six months of the year, the gross margin increased by 1.0 percentage point compared to the first six months of prior year and came to 43.6%. The improvement was attributable to the drivers mentioned above. Across the branded professional business, EMEA continued to improve gross margins driven by pricing and mix effects. Gross margins in Americas generally declined due to tariffs and mix, while APAC was negatively impacted by low performance in the Pacific region. Overhead costs Overhead costs in Q2 2019 were reduced by 4.6 mEUR compared to Q2 2018 and came to 90.5 mEUR. However, the reduced overhead costs did not fully compensate for the negative revenue development and, as a result, the cost ratio increased to 35.0% compared to 33.4% in Q2 2018 (33.2% including the Q2 2018 adjustment of 0.7 mEUR related to the phantom share program). The reduction in overhead costs was primarily driven by divestments and the cost saving program and other savings in general. Investments in future intelligent solutions, cost inflation and FX (mainly USD) affected the overhead costs negatively. During Q2, the cost saving program continued according to plan. The program is described in more detail on page 7. The savings are to a large extent utilized for re-investing in the business to ensure future growth and position Nilfisk as a leader of intelligent cleaning. For the first half of 2019 overhead costs were reduced by 3.4 mEUR and amounted to 178.6 mEUR, corresponding to an overhead cost ratio of 35.4% compared to 33.6% in the first half of 2018 (34.2% including the H1 2018 adjustment of 3.2 mEUR related to the phantom share program). Since December 2018, the phantom shares have been hedged and any value adjustments no longer impacts the overhead costs. Given the current macroeconomic conditions in EMEA in particular, management has installed a high degree of cost cautiousness across the business.

year impacted by the phantom share program reversal in 2018 and increased special items as mentioned above.

EBITDA before special items EBITDA before special items increased by 4.5 mEUR compared to Q2 prior year and amounted to 39.4 mEUR. IFRS 16 increased the amount by 7.0 mEUR. Adjusted for the effect of IFRS 16, this corresponds to an operating margin of 12.5% equal to Q2 2018.

EBIT before special items for the quarter amounted to 22.1 mEUR compared to 25.2 mEUR in Q2 2018, equivalent to margins of 8.5% and 8.9% respectively. For the first six months of the year, EBIT before special items amounted to 39.0 mEUR compared to 45.9 mEUR in the first six months of 2018, equivalent to margins of 7.7% and 8.5% respectively. Excluding the impact from phantom shares the margin would have been 7.9% in the first six months of 2018.

Special items In Q2 2019, special items were 7.8 mEUR against 4.3 mEUR in Q2 2018. For the first six months the special items were 15.2 mEUR compared to 6.6 mEUR in the first six months of the prior year. The special items costs were primarily related to the cost saving program, business restructuring and divestments. The business restructuring relates to the next phase in our multi-year strategy, a blueprint restructuring project focusing on a one-off fundamental change of the organizational setup. Please refer to Note 6.

Result before financial items and income taxes (EBIT)

Working capital At the end of June 2019, working capital was 198.5 mEUR, down by 9.8 mEUR compared to end-June 2018 but up 28.1 mEUR compared to year-end 2018. Compared to end-June 2018 the decrease was mainly attributable to lower inventories driven by the reduced production footprint in combination with both lower trade receivables and trade payables. Compared to year-end 2018, inventories have increased by 11.2 mEUR primarily driven by lower than expected sales. Trade receivables also increased primarily in EMEA, in part driven by changes in customer mix. Trade payables were at the same level as year-end 2018.

and EBIT before special items In Q2 2019, EBIT decreased by 6.6 mEUR from Q2 2018, and totaled 14.3 mEUR primarily driven by higher special items. This corresponds to an EBIT margin of 5.5% compared to 7.3% in Q2 prior year.

The working capital ratio measured on a 12-month average increased by 1.2 percentage points to 19.7% at the end of June 2019 compared to the end of 2018. Nilfisk continues to focus on improving net working capital.

For the first six months of the year, EBITDA before special items increased by 6.7 mEUR compared to the first six months of the prior year and amounted to 72.1 mEUR. IFRS 16 increased the amount by 13.7 mEUR. Adjusted for the effects of IFRS 16, this corresponds to an operating margin of 11.6%, which was a slight improvement compared to 11.5% for the first six months of 2018.

Capital employed and RoCE As of June 2019, capital employed amounted to 613.7 mEUR, up by 66.7 mEUR compared to June 2018 and up by 96.9 mEUR compared to 516.8 mEUR at the end of 2018. The development in capital employed since year-end 2018 was largely driven by the IFRS 16 uplift of 62.6 mEUR and the above-mentioned increase in net working capital. Nilfisk’s return on capital employed was 14.2%, which was a reduction of 0.5 percentage point compared to Q2 2018. IFRS 16 impacted the ratio negatively by 0.7 percentage point. Adjusting for the effect of IFRS 16, the underlying ratio improved by 0.2 percentage point compared to last year, driven by lower net working capital and higher EBIT before special items. Compared to year-end 2018, return on capital employed declined by 2.5 percentage points. IFRS 16 had a negative effect of 0.7 percentage point. The decline was driven by higher net working capital compared to year-end and lower EBIT before special items. Please refer to Note 1 for IFRS 16 impact. Cash flow Cash flow from operating activities in Q2 2019 amounted to a net cash flow of 27.5 mEUR compared to 11.2 mEUR in Q2 2018. For the first six months of the year the cash flow from operating activities was 16.4 mEUR compared to a slight cash outflow of 0.1 mEUR in 2018. Excluding the impact from IFRS 16 the cash flow from operating activities amounted to 20.5 mEUR in Q2 2019 and 2.7 mEUR for the first six months of 2019. Compared to prior year, both Q2 2019 and the first six months of 2019 were positively affected by improved cash effect of the net working capital development. Cash flow from investing activities for the quarter was a net cash outflow of 11.2 mEUR compared to a net cash outflow of 12.5 mEUR in 2018. For the first six months of the year, the outflow was 23.5 mEUR compared to an outflow of 22.0 mEUR the year before. The outflow related primarily to the addition of intangible assets within R&D. Free cash flow for Q2 2019 amounted to 16.3 mEUR compared with an outflow of 1.3 mEUR in Q2 2018. For the first six months of the year, the free cash flow amounted to outflow of 7.1 mEUR compared to

Cost saving program 2017-2020 During the first half of 2019, execution of the cost saving program continued to progress in line with expectations. We saw satisfactory progress in the activities identified. The cost saving program has a target of realizing 50 mEUR in annual savings on the original cost base when initiating the program. The cost saving program has facilitated investments in various areas of the business in order to establish the foundation for continued future growth.

initiatives (production footprint, sourcing initiatives and process optimizations) and 3 mEUR related to other initiatives such as complexity reductions and price management – both of which benefit the gross profit – and approximately 22 mEUR related to overhead reductions in selected areas of the business. For the first half of 2019, an additional 4 mEUR have been realized compared to the savings realized in H1 2018. These can be split between improvements in gross profit of 2 mEUR and overhead cost reductions of 2 mEUR. For Q2 2019, additional savings of 2 mEUR were realized compared to Q2 2018, split between 1 mEUR in gross profit improvements and 1 mEUR in overhead reductions.

By the end of June 2019, initiatives implemented and launched relating to the program amounted to an accumulated effect of 37 mEUR in annual cost savings. These savings can be split between approximately 12 mEUR related to Global Operations

outflow of 22.1 mEUR in 2018. Excluding the impact from IFRS 16 the free cash flow from operating activities amounted to 9.3 mEUR in Q2 2019 and an outflow of 6.6 mEUR for the first six months of 2019. Equity Equity was 160.5 mEUR at the end of June 2019 against 147.5 mEUR at the end of 2018. The increase was mainly driven by the result for the first six months of 2019, foreign exchange rate adjustments, and settlement of share-based incentive programs. Net interest-bearing debt At the end of June 2019, total net interest-bearing debt was 453.5 mEUR, which was an increase of 84.2 mEUR compared to year-end 2018. Compared to end-June 2018, net interest-bearing debt increased by 73.1 mEUR. The increase was primarily driven by the effect of IFRS 16, which has increased the lease liability by 63.4 mEUR compared to year-end 2018. The financial gearing at the end of June 2019 was 3.4 versus 2.9 at end of 2018 and 3.3 at the end of June 2018. IFRS 16 increased the gearing by 0.1. Subsequent events Other than as set out above or elsewhere in these condensed consolidated interim financial statements, we are not aware of events subsequent to June 30, 2019, that are expected to have a material impact on the Group’s financial position.

Continued transformation of Nilfisk In Q2 2019 Nilfisk continued to execute and solidify the transformational initiatives that aim to drive the existing business to the peak of its profitability while positioning Nilfisk as the leader in intelligent cleaning. Consolidating a global ‘blueprint’ In Q1 2019 a harmonized sales structure or ‘blueprint’ was rolled out across EMEA and implemented in Germany, the UK and the Nordics. Prior to this, a similar blueprint was implemented in the US, marking a significant step towards a more globally aligned company across markets, rooted in the Nilfisk Next strategy. During Q2 Nilfisk consolidated the global blueprint further across markets and business functions to allow for common processes and ways of working, representing a significant transformation that supports the simplification of Nilfisk. Throughout first half of 2019 Nilfisk saw positive outcomes of the blueprint exercise, most significantly a rightsizing of the sales organization combined with a simplified organizational structure in key functions such as Finance, Service, and Marketing. Consolidation of European distribution structure To continue simplifying the supply chain in line with the Nilfisk Next strategy, and to further optimize the geographical location of Nilfisk’s distribution centers, Nilfisk has initiated the implementation of a new distribution center structure in EMEA.

Nilfisk has entered into partnership with a global logistics company to implement this new structure. Over the coming years, up to four new regional distribution centers will be established, located in accordance with center of gravity analysis based on current and expected future sales. All EMEA distribution centers will be fully operated by the new logistics partner. As a consequence, Nilfisk’s current distribution center in Broendby will be closed. Digital solutions supporting sales and service Nilfisk has continued to roll-out the Salesforce and ServiceMax platforms globally, onboarding sales, service and marketing teams in key EMEA markets such as Germany, Austria and Switzerland and in selected markets in APAC. By the end of year the two platforms are expected to be fully implemented providing Nilfisk with one global CRM platform and a unified way to service customers. Having a 360-degree view of the customer has increased the collaboration and efficiency for the frontline teams and will continue to support the growth of Nilfisk as the roll out is fully implemented. Expanding sales of autonomous machines During Q2 2019, Nilfisk continued to ramp up sales efforts for the Nilfisk Liberty SC50 covering new markets and reaching more customers across EMEA and Americas. At the same time, Nilfisk continued the development of its next autonomous solution complementing the existing Nilfisk Liberty SC50.

Modular product design In Q2 Nilfisk launched the SC901 in Americas under the Advance brand. The SC901 is a scrubber dryer designed with a strong focus on modularity, meaning that several components of the SC901 are identical to those of other Nilfisk solutions. This reduces operational complexity and brings benefits for R&D, Production and Procurement. At the same time the modular design creates a consistent look and feel of the user interface, which is an advantage for customers, and helps Nilfisk Sales and Service with ease of maintenance and repair.

Note 1 Significant accounting policies

This Interim Report has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34, “Interim Financial Reporting” as adopted by the EU and additional Danish disclosure requirements for listed companies. The interim report contains condensed financial statements for the group. No interim report has been prepared for the parent company. Except for below, the interim report follows the same accounting policies as the consolidated financial statements for 2018, which provide a full description of the significant accounting policies. Financial statement figures are stated in million EUR. As a result, rounding discrepancies may occur because sum totals have been rounded off and the underlying decimals are not presented to financial statement users. Amendments to accounting standards that are mandatorily effective for the current reporting period The Nilfisk Group has adopted the following new and revised standards issued by IASB, which are effective for the current reporting period that starts on January 1, 2019: • IFRS 16 Leasing • IFRIC 23 Uncertainty over Income Tax Treatments The implementation of the new and revised standards resulted in the changes described below. Other new and revised standards have been assessed, but they have not had material impact on accounting policies or disclosures for the period. IFRS 16 – Leases IASB has issued IFRS 16 Leases with the effective date of January 1, 2019. The standard eliminates the distinction between operating and finance leases, and requires that all leases must be recognized in the lessee’s balance sheet as an asset with a related liability. Nilfisk’s income statement has been affected, as the annual lease costs now

consist of two elements, depreciation of the leased asset and an interest expense for the financial liability. Previously, the annual costs relating to operating leases were recognized as operating costs. Nilfisk’s accounting as lessor has not significantly changed. The simplified transition approach has been applied and accordingly, we have not restated comparative amounts for the year prior to first adoption. Further, we have not changed the current accounting for existing finance leases. The Group has chosen the following transition approach relating to IFRS 16: • Leases classified as operating leases under IAS 17 have been measured at the present value of the remaining lease payments discounted using an appropriate incremental borrowing rate at January 1, 2019 • Agreements with a less than 12-month contract period and lowvalue agreements have not been recognized • The same discount rate has been used on a portfolio of leasing agreements with similar conditions • Existing assessments of whether leases are onerous have been applied Lease costs were not split into service components and rental costs but were accounted as a single lease component. Variable costs have been expensed as operational costs. Agreements that can be prolonged or terminated prematurely by the lessee have been reviewed to establish the period in which the Group with reasonable certainty will utilize the underlying asset. The review was done on a contract-by-contract basis. No contracts have a reasonably certain utilization period of more than 10 years from January 1, 2019.

From January 1, 2019, the right-of-use assets and lease liabilities were recognized in the balance sheet. The implementation of IFRS 16 will further require additional disclosures in the Annual Report 2019. IFRS 16 will have an insignificant impact on result for the year and EBIT. The adoption is expected to have a positive impact on the Group’s EBITDA margin before special items of approximately 2.7% percentage points on an annual basis based on the Group’s current use of leasing though expected increase in depreciation for the year 2019. The implementation has resulted in an increase in total assets and liabilities by 71 mEUR on January 1, 2019. The operating lease commitments totaled 67.8 mEUR as per the 2018 Annual Report Note 8.4. The lease liability was measured using the implicit borrowing rate for the contract or the marginal borrowing rate for the country. The weighted average incremental borrowing rate for lease liabilities initially recognized was 2.7%. The increased total assets and liabilities will affect RoCE by approximately 1.7 percentage points based on December 31, 2018 figures. As of June 30, 2019, there was a positive impact on free cash flow of approximately 13 mEUR as repayments of lease liabilities were included under Financing. The implementation of IFRS 16 had no impact on equity. Impact of IFRS 16:

Significant accounting policies – continued

Significant accounting estimates

Seasonal fluctuations

and judgements IFRIC 23 – Uncertainty over Income Tax Treatments IASB has issued IFRIC 23 Uncertainty over Income Tax Treatments, with the effective date of January 1, 2019. The interpretation addresses the accounting for income taxes when tax treatments involve uncertainty. The Group has established the necessary processes and procedures to obtain information that is required to apply the interpretation. The Group considers the provisions made to be adequate, however, the actual obligation may deviate depending on the result of litigations and settlements with local tax authorities.

There are no significant changes in accounting estimates and judgements compared to the information stated in the 2018 Annual Report. Regarding accounting estimates, please refer to Note 1 of the 2018 Annual Report. Regarding risks please refer to Note 6 of the 2018 Annual Report and the information contained in the section on risk management of the 2018 Annual Report.

Due to the composition of the Nilfisk business, some degree of seasonality in revenue should be expected. The market for consumer high pressure washers is highly seasonal, for example, and other product categories are impacted by local holidays in specific markets.

Impact relating to IFRS 16 is described in Note 1.

Cash flow from operations is typically weaker in Q1 due to negative changes in working capital in Q1 and Q2 as inventories increase. Working capital normally improves during Q3 and Q4.

Normally, the quarterly EBIT follows the seasonality in revenue.

Operating segments redefined Following the divestments made during 2018 and the integration of the Industrial Vacuum Solution business (IVS) into the Nilfisk Professional sales organizations, Nilfisk has changed the reportable segments with effect from January 1, 2019, and has been reflected since the Q1 2019 Interim Report. The Specialty Professional segment has been eliminated. The continuing business areas after the divestments in 2018, IVS and Nilfisk FOOD, are now both included in the geographical split of our branded professional business. Non-allocated within the branded business contains costs allocated to the segment which cannot be directly attributed to the geographical segments. The costs cover shared distribution centers, shared marketing as well as shared functions for digitalization. The Consumer business is reported separately. The Private label business area is reported under “Private Label and other” including the remaining corporate costs that are not directly associated with any of the operating segments. Comparative figures for 2018 have been restated accordingly.

Long-term incentive programs

Special items represent income and expenses that have a non-recurring and special nature against normal operating income and costs.

In line with the remuneration policy approved by the Annual General Meeting in March 2018, the Nilfisk Leadership Team and selected key employees have been awarded performance share units with a three-year cliff vesting depending on performance measures on EBITDA, RoCE and Total Shareholder Return (TSR). In 2019 a total of 33 employees were offered participation in the 2019 program with a total of 58,777 performance share units equal to 0.2% of the total number of shares in Nilfisk Holding A/S. The key employees outside the Nilfisk Leadership Team are offered participation in return for a reduction in the annual bonus. In the first six months of 2019, Nilfisk has expensed 0.2 mEUR relating to the 2019 long-term incentive program.

Special items relating to the cost saving program represent restructuring costs relating to the 50 mEUR cost saving program running from 2016 to 2020. The program includes consultancy fees and supporting tools as well as alignment of facilities, transitioning costs relating to offshoring of functions, pruning of products and redundancy costs to staff where one-off related costs are paid out.

Aftermarket includes service as well as sale of parts, consumables and accessories. Depending on the type of contract, service revenue is recognized over time or at a point in time. For information on revenue recognition, see accounting policy described in the 2018 Annual Report, Note 2.2.

Business restructuring covers redundancy cost associated with the blueprint restructuring project including consultancy fees related to strategic reviews of business areas. For more information regarding special items, please refer to Note 2.4 in the 2018 Annual Report.

In 2016, certain former and current members of the Nilfisk Leadership Team were granted the right to purchase shares (share options).
