Q3

EBITA was in line with expectations and we

see a positive trend in organic growth. We reconfirm our guidance for operational EBITA. However, non-recurring costs will, among other things, be impacted by severance pay with regard to the change in CEO.

CEO Jens Andersen says:

"Our core business saw an improved performance in Q3 and we keep improving net working capital. We have a strong platform in the core business, and we will continue to develop and optimise this in order to increase competitiveness and make us an even more attractive sourcing and services company. While strengthening focus on the core business, we are continuing our digital journey with introducing digital solutions and cooperation with partners within digital construction and services."

Q3 2017 revenue

Q3 2017 EBITA

  • EBITA was in line with expectations.

  • EBITA for the core business was up by more than a third or DKK 25m in Q3, while our related business diluted EBITA by DKK 10m compared to DKK 5m in Q3 2016.

2017 outlook

  • We now expect revenue of approx. DKK 11.7bn, corresponding to organic growth of approx. 6%. Our previous expectations were revenue above DKK 11.4bn, corresponding to organic growth above 3%.

  • We expect an operational EBITA of DKK 345m, which is unchanged. Also unchanged, we expect to spend approx. DKK 25m on innovation and business development. Compared to  previously announced, costs related to structural changes are expected to increase with approx. DKK 15m to a total of DKK 35m. The increase is among other things due to severance pay with regard to the change in CEO announced in October. Thus, we expect an EBITA of approx. DKK 285m, down from DKK 300m.

Jyske Bank/CEO: Vi satser meget, meget hårdt på it - citat

20-06-2018 13:38:15
