CEO Leif Bergvall Hansen comments on the second quarter

August 23, 2017

Net revenues increased by 8 percent in the second quarter compared to the same period last year, totalling MSEK 1,621.8 million. All geographic entities contributed to the growth.

I am pleased to report that adjusted operating income improved by MSEK 10.7 from the first quarter, of which approximately half refers to a less negative impact from the bird flu. Adjusted operating income in the quarter amounted to MSEK 70.0 compared to MSEK 74.3 in the second quarter last year, and MSEK 59.3 in the first quarter 2017. Adjusted EBITDA was in line with the second quarter last year.

Please, see the interim report, second quarter 2017.
