  • Guidance for 2016/17:


In the 2015/16 annual report, Management's guidance was revenue from continuing operations of around DKKm 240 and a profit before tax of around DKKm 15 for the 2016/17 financial year. After the first half of 2016/17, Management upgraded its guidance for the 2016/17 financial year to revenue of around DKKm 290 and profit before tax of around DKKm 20 for continuing operations. It is expected a profit before tax of DKKm 4 for discontinuing operations.

After the first nine months of the 2016/17 financial year, Management retains its guidance for revenue of around DKKm 290, and upgrades the profit before tax to around DKKm 22,5 for continuing operations. Management expects the Q4 performance to be adversely impacted by an unfavourable product mix. The profit before tax for the discontinued operations is expected to remain around DKKm 4.
