Havila Kystruten AS: Regnskap for tredje kvartal 20231.12.2023 18:34:33 CET | Pressemelding
September var første måned med full drift av alle fire skip. Til tross for forsinkelse av Havila Polaris og Havila Pollux i Q3, ble gjennomsnittlig belegg 70 % og gjennomsnittlig lugarrate kr 4 466. Inntektene er naturligvis preget av forsinkelsene og lavere enn forventet, men selskapet ser en positiv inntektsutvikling fra 2. kvartal og videre ut året. I forbindelse med refinansiering er driftskostnadene påvirket av ekstraordinære kostnader knyttet til juridiske og finansielle rådgivere. Regnskap og balanse påvirkes av valutasvingningene, og selskapet sikrer sine valutaforpliktelser med salg i valuta. Selskapet legger til grunn en normalisert drift av fire skip fremover, uten ekstraordinære kostnader. Selskapet har ambisjoner om et gjennomsnittlig belegg på 80 % for 2024, hvorav 45 % av all kapasitet allerede er solgt. Interessen for Havila Kystruten øker stadig i både inn- og utland, og positive tilbakemeldinger om produkt og konsept mottas på daglig basis. Resultat for 3. kvartal 202
Havila Kystruten : Third quarter 2023 accounts1.12.2023 18:34:33 CET | Press release
September marked the first month of full operation for all four ships. Despite the delays with Havila Polaris and Havila Pollux in Q3, the average occupancy rate reached 70%, with an average cabin rate of NOK 4,466. Revenues are naturally affected by the delays and lower than expected, but the company sees a positive revenue trend from the 2nd quarter and onward throughout the year. In connection with refinancing, operating costs were affected by extraordinary expenses related to legal and financial advisors. Currency fluctuations have had an impact on the financial statements and balance sheet, and the company is hedging its currency commitments through currency sales. The company assumes normalized operation of four ships going forward, without extraordinary costs. The company aims for an average occupancy rate of 80% for 2024, with 45% of all capacity already sold. Interest in Havila Kystruten is continually growing both domestically and internationally, with positive feedback on th
