Interim financial report for 1 January - 30 September 2017 for FirstFarms A/S

Significant profit increase for the first 9 months and maintains expectations


The Board of Directors and Management of FirstFarms A/S have today reviewed and adopted the un-audited interim financial accounts for the period 1 January - 30 September 2017.


  • The turnover has increased by DKK 45 million and result before tax has improved by DKK 7 million compared to same period last year.
  • FirstFarms has in the accounting period realised a turnover of DKK 134.8 million, an EBIT result of DKK 9.3 million and a pre-tax result of DKK 1.9 million.
  • FirstFarms maintains the announced expectations about an EBIT result of DKK 18-22 million. The assumption is a stable price on piglets and a milk price in Q4, 2017 on the present level.
  • In the first 9 months of the year, the milk price has been significantly better than budget. The settlement price for milk has increased by DKK 0.85 pr. kg compared to same period last year.
  • The price on piglets has been as budgeted in the first 9 months of the year.
  • The sales prices for crops have in total been as budget.
  • The harvest yields for the winter crops have been as budgeted, whereas the spring crops in general have suffered during the drought. Especially the maize yields are negatively affected in Slovakia and West Romania, whereas East Romania has harvest yields in line with expected. All in all, the yields will result in a negative influence on the result with DKK 15 million.
  • The administration costs are increasing based on the expansion with activities in Hungary.
  • In Hungary, two building sites are purchased, which gives the possibility to establish a pig project with 4,000 sows incl. piglets.
