EVRY reports a second quarter of 2019 with growth in consulting services and application services that drives a favourable revenue mix and supports the strategic direction
(12 July 2019, Fornebu) EVRY reports operating revenue of NOK 3 178 million for the second quarter of 2019 as compared to NOK 3 286 million in the second quarter of 2018. Operating revenue for the first six months of 2019 was NOK 6 507 million up from NOK 6 494 million compared to the same period last year. Adjusted for currency impact and acquisitions, the organic growth was 0.1% in the first six months of 2019 relative to the first six months of 2018. Financial Services reported positive organic growth in the second quarter, while the other areas were affected by seasonality.
Adjusted for currency impact and acquisitions, the organic growth** was negative 3.4% in the second quarter of 2019. The negative growth was mainly due to lower revenues within fulfilment services, which is in line with the company’s strategy towards a service mix with higher margin services.
Reported EBITA* in the second quarter of 2019 was NOK 354 million, compared to NOK 374 million in the second quarter of 2018. The EBITA* margin ended at 11.2% compared to 11.4% in the same quarter last year. The reduced margin was a result of seasonality (2 working days less in Q2) and a continued soft performance in Sweden. The reported EBITA the first six months of 2019 was NOK 686 million, compared to NOK 694 million in the first six months of 2018. The EBITA margin ended at 10.5% in the first six months of 2019, compared to 10.7% in the first six months of 2018.
EVRY had an order backlog of NOK 18.1 billion at the end of June 2019 as a result of a strong mix of deliveries and sales motions also in the second quarter of 2019.
