Q2

EBITA was on par with expectations and we

reconfirm our EBITA guidance for the full year.

Revenue and results for the quarter were negatively impacted by the timing of Easter compared to Q2 2016, but when taking the number of working days into consideration, Solar's business experienced solid growth.

CEO Anders Wilhjelm says:

"The main business improved performance in H1. Our key markets, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and the Netherlands generated both growth and earnings significantly above last year, and performance was good in both installation and industry. However, as we are investing in new business, such as MAG45 and Solar Polaris, earnings were diluted as expected."

Q2 2017 revenue

  • Organic growth increased to 7.4% from -1.8% in Q2 2016 adjusted for the number of working days.

Q2 2017 EBITA

  • EBITA was on par with expectations.

  • Compared to Q2 2016, there has been an increase in external operating costs and staff costs, which was primarily related to MAG45's growth-related initiatives, the effect of the acquisitions of STI and Solar Polaris in 2016 and 2017, and necessary structural changes.

  • In H1, approx. DKK 30m of the expected 2017 costs related to innovation and business development as well as to the necessary structural changes were included. Hence, operational EBITA increased to approx. DKK 130m from approx. DKK 115m in H12016.

2017 outlook

  • We expect revenue above DKK 11.4bn, corresponding to organic growth above 3%.

For 2017, we expect to spend approx. DKK 25m in innovation and business development and approx. DKK 20m on structural changes.

  • We reconfirm our expectations for EBITA of approx. DKK 300m.
