NKT A/S Q3 2023 Interim Report: 44% organic growth and record-high operational EBITDA
NKT CEO Claes Westerlind on the development in Q3 2023:
- For the fourth consecutive quarter, we achieved double-digit growth in revenues and operational EBITDA, driven by capacity expansions, satisfactory project execution, and continued growth in our Solutions and Applications business lines.
Our leading position in the high-voltage power cable market was once again confirmed by significant project awards, including the largest order in NKT’s history from German Transmission System Operator 50Hertz. We are honoured by the trust that our customers continue to have in our ability to deliver leading power cable solutions and are proud that NKT continue to have a central role in connecting a greener world.

2023 financial outlook
The financial outlook was updated in Company Announcement No. 29 of 30 October 2023.
Revenues (in std. metal prices) are expected to be approx. EUR 1.85-1.9bn (previously approx. EUR 1.8-1.9bn) and operational EBITDA is expected to be approx. EUR 240-260m (previously approx. EUR 215-245m).
Positive development in revenues and operational EBITDA
In Q3 2023, NKT’s revenues (in std. metal prices) increased by EUR 143m compared to Q3 2022, corresponding to 44% organic growth. The improvement was due to increased revenues in Solutions and Applications, where satisfactory execution and previous capacity and capability investments drove the majority of growth. In Service & Accessories revenues decreased, reflecting lower service repair activity compared to Q3 2022.
Driven by higher revenues, as well as margin improvement, within Solutions and Applications, operational EBITDA increased to a record-high quarterly level of EUR 76.5m in Q3 2023, against EUR 35.2m in Q3 2022.
In Q3 2023, the high-voltage order backlog took another significant step up to a new record-high level of EUR 11.0bn (EUR 9.6 in std. metal prices). This was driven by the award of a framework agreement and five power cable projects with German Transmission System Operator 50Hertz. The five projects have a combined value of approx. EUR 3.5bn which set a new company record for NKT.
In Q3 2023, NKT also progressed execution of its approx. EUR 1bn investment program, which was announced in May 2023 to deliver on the company’s record-high order backlog and support future profitable growth. Significant capital expenditures related to the investment program are expected to commence in the coming years. In preparation for this, NKT strengthened its capital structure through a fully subscribed rights issue, which contributed net proceeds of EUR 357m in Q3 2023.

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
