Alleroed, 2017-08-22 08:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

The Board of Directors of Matas A/S today considered and adopted the interim report for the period 1 April – 30 June 2017.

   

Fewer trading days drive revenue lower – guidance maintained

  • Q1 2017/18 revenue was down by 3.2% year on year to DKK 820.9 million. Underlying (like-for-like) revenue was down by 2.9%.

  • The number of trading days was down by three to 72 relative to Q1 2016/17, which is estimated to have eroded revenue by around 2%. Revenue was also affected by poor spring weather driving seasonal sales down relative to Q1 2016/17. Customer traffic and the number of transactions fell in the first quarter of the year, while the average basket size developed positively with a growth rate of 6.6%.      

  • High-End Beauty sales showed a very satisfactory performance, more than offsetting the negative impact of a larger number of competing outlets relative to the same period of last year, which affected Mass Beauty sales in particular. Overall Beauty sales were slightly ahead.

  • Q1 2017/18 gross profit was DKK 379.1 million, taking the gross margin to 46.2%, a 1.1 percentage point decline compared with 47.3% in Q1 2016/17.

  • Total costs declined compared with the year-earlier period, reflecting, among other things, the cost reduction programme completed towards the end of financial year 2016/17.

  • Results of operations for Q1 fell short of our ambitions. Expecting an improved performance in the rest of the financial year, we confirm our full-year sales and profit forecasts.

  • EBITA was DKK 119.0 million in Q1 2017/18, equivalent to an EBITA margin of 14.5%, against 16.1% in the year-earlier period. The fall in EBITA margin was driven down by a lower gross margin.

  • Q1 profit after tax was DKK 74.0 million, and Adjusted profit after tax net of amortisation not related to software was DKK 88.9 million, compared with DKK 84.6 million and DKK 99.4 million, respectively, in Q1 2016/17.

Ørsted/CFO: Ingen planer om yderligere frasalg i Europa efter Hornsea

20-09-2018 12:43:04
Der kommer sandsynligvis til at gå længere tid mellem, at danske Ørsted sælger ud af havvindmølleporteføljen i Europa, efter at energikoncernen tirsdag annoncerede et frasalg af halvdelen af den store britiske havvindmøllepark Hornsea 1.I flere år har Ørsted løbende solgt dele af en lang række projekter for at sikre, at der var penge nok til at investere i at opføre flere af de omkostningstunge ha..

Ørsted/CFO: Arbejder på at sælge dele fra af havvindparker i Taiwan

20-09-2018 08:30:32
Frasalg af ejerandele i havvindmølleparker i Europa skal ikke ske nærmest automatisk fremover for energiselskabet Ørsted, men i Taiwan ser strategien anderledes ud.Den danske energikoncern har i løbet af i år vundet retten til at opføre havvindmølleparker med en samlet kapacitet på 1820 megawatt ud for den taiwanske kyst, og her øjner Ørsted også muligheden for at få nogle penge i kassen fra ejera..
