Havila Kystruten AS: Fourth quarter 2023 accounts28.2.2024 22:24:49 CET | Press release
Summary The company has completed its first quarter with full operation of all four ships. Revenue in the fourth quarter was MNOK 249. Due to late clarification on the delivery of the last two ships, the revenue side is somewhat lower than if the pre-sale had started earlier. The last quarter of 2023 ended with an average fleet occupancy of 60%, an average cabin rate (ACR) of NOK 3,100 and a utilization rate of 1.8 per cabin. Occupancy and average price per cabin are higher than the fourth quarter of 2022, but are somewhat lower than the third quarter due to lower demand in the autumn and winter months. EBITDA was negative by MNOK 33.2 in the fourth quarter and MNOK 179 for the full year. Operating costs amounted to MNOK 283 in the fourth quarter and are mainly ordinary operating costs for operating four ships. Some of the operating costs are related to the number of passengers, while the largest cost items are not significantly affected by occupancy. MNOK 18 relates to extraordinary m
Havila Kystruten AS: Regnskap for fjerde kvartal 202328.2.2024 22:24:49 CET | Pressemelding
Sammendrag Selskapet har gjennomført sitt første kvartal med full drift av alle fire skip. Inntektene utgjorde i fjerde kvartal MNOK 249. Som følge av sen avklaring på levering av de to siste skipene, er inntektssiden noe lavere enn om forhåndssalget hadde startet før. Siste kvartal i 2023 endte med et gjennomsnittlig belegg for flåten på 60%, en gjennomsnittlig lugarrate (ACR) på NOK 3 100 og en utnyttelsesgrad på 1,8 per lugar. Belegg og gjennomsnittspris per lugar er høyere enn fjerde kvartal 2022, men er noe lavere enn tredje kvartal som følge av lavere etterspørsel i høst- og vintermånedene. EBITDA var negativ med MNOK 33,2 i fjerde kvartal og MNOK 179 for hele året. Driftskostnadene utgjør MNOK 283 i fjerde kvartal og er hovedsakelig ordinære driftskostnader for drift av fire skip. Deler av driftskostnadene er knyttet til antall passasjerer, mens de største kostnadspostene ikke er vesentlig påvirket av belegg. MNOK 18 gjelder ekstraordinære kostnader til markedsføring for å sikre
