Nobina publishes preliminary earnings for second quarter of 2020/21


- Nobina is today publishing its preliminary earnings for the second quarter of 2020/21 due to higher profit than market expectations.

STOCKHOLM, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Market expectations were exceeded due to the implementation of robust measures, swift adaptation and retroactive revenue from the first quarter of 2020/21.

Year-on-year, sales for the quarter are expected to grow 1.4 percent and adjusted earnings before tax is expected to rise by SEK 46 million. Sales for the quarter are forecast at SEK 2,564 million, and adjusted EBT* at SEK 153 million.

The earnings improvement is largely the result of retroactive revenue (SEK 27 million) following the completion of contract negotiations, in which the company reached agreement with the majority of its PTA's on how the effects of the pandemic would be managed. In addition, Samtrans Omsorgsresor implemented major changes to its activities to meet demand in society for mobile testing stations for covid-19. These factors, together with the rapid changes implemented by the company in terms of cost control and efficiency, have contributed to the overall improvement in profit. Lastly, earnings are also boosted by the positive impact of contract migration in Norway and Finland.

All figures presented in this press release are preliminary and unaudited. The final report for the second quarter of 2020 will be published at 8:00 a.m. CEST on 30 September 2020.
