Segment reporting historic
Lindab’s business was operated in three business areas up until the reorganisation of 1 October 2013. The previous business area structure for Ventilation and Building Components has been replaced by a geographically-based sales organisation to take advantage of Lindab's strong market presence and is supported by four product and system areas plus central production and purchasing functions. Throughout 2013, the segments were reported in accordance with the previous structure. From 1 January 2014 onwards, reports will be issued under the new reporting structure, which means that the group now consists of two segments, Products & Solutions and Building Systems. Products & Solutions consists of the former business areas Ventilation and Building Components, and Building Systems will continue as its own segment as was previously the case. This is also reflected in the figures presented for the segments. The segment Other as previously covers the parent company's functions.

In January 2010 the former business area Profile was split in two: Building Components and Building Systems. Sales, operating profit (EBIT) and operating margin (EBIT) per business area, according to the segmentation of three business areas, for the period 2006 – 2010, are presented below.
