ForFarmers N.V.: ForFarmers third quarter 2021 Trading Update

Share

Lochem, 2 November 2021       

ForFarmers third quarter 2021 Trading Update         

Highlights third quarter 20211:

  • Volume Total Feed2: down by -1.4%
  • Volume compound feed: up by 1.0%; due to acquisitions and like-for-like growth in Germany/Poland, decline elsewhere
  • Gross profit: up by 2.6%; due to acquisitions and better product mix with more compound feed
  • Underlying EBITDA: down by 22.0%; due to significantly higher energy prices and despite structural organisational cost savings.

Yoram Knoop, CEO of ForFarmers: “Our total volume has decreased in the third quarter as a result of the continuing challenging market circumstances. However, the two acquisitions which we made at the beginning of the year and our Polish activities realised good results. Our gross profit rose accordingly.
During this quarter we have also made progress with structural cost savings as part of our efficiency programme. However, the increase of energy prices was so substantial that this has led to a significant decrease of underlying EBITDA. How energy prices in particular will develop is unpredictable. We therefore refrain from providing an outlook for the results in the fourth quarter of 2021. Further and faster implementation of the strategy Build to Grow, including our efficiency programme, has the highest priority. We aim to enhance our positions through M&A, in our home countries but also possibly beyond. The intent is to create a better geographical balance of activities. Within the strategy, and given our strong balance sheet, we are also looking at alternatives for capital allocation. We will report about this shortly. In this light, we also intend to distribute a dividend per ordinary share over the year 2021, which is comparable to the dividend over 2020. Finally, we have also changed our management structure to be more agile and decisive in our local markets.”

  1. Results and developments of the third quarter 2021 are compared to those of the third quarter 2020, unless stated differently
  1. Total Feed covers the entire ForFarmers product portfolio and comprises compound feed, specialties, co-products (from the feed industry, referred to as DML products), seeds and other products (such as forage)

Projekt Öyfjellet försenat – beräknas färdigställas under första kvartalet 20223.12.2021 21:15:00 CET | Pressemelding

Hässleholm den 3 december 2021 I delårsrapporten för det tredje kvartalet, som offentliggjordes den 18 november 2021, kommunicerade Eolus att det finns risk för försening i färdigställandet av det norska 400 MW projektet Öyfjellet. Baserat på uppdaterad information om byggprocessen beräknar Eolus nu att vindparken färdigställs under det första kvartalet 2022. Per idag, den 3 december 2021, har samtliga 72 turbiner färdigmonterats. 34 turbiner har börjat generera el. Huvudskälen till förseningen är utmanande väderförhållanden, vilket har påverkat installationsarbetet, samt Covid-19 relaterade orsaker som begränsat både resemöjligheterna för personal och lett till leveransförseningar avseende komponenter. Förseningen kommer att ha en negativ påverkan på Eolus projektmarginal.

Project Øyfjellet delayed - new estimated completion in the first quarter of 20223.12.2021 21:15:00 CET | Press release

Hässleholm, Sweden, December 3rd, 2021 In the interim report for the third quarter, released on November 18, 2021, Eolus communicated a risk of delay in the completion of the 400 MW Norwegian wind project Øyfjellet. Based on updated information of the construction progress, Eolus now estimates that the wind farm will be completed during the first quarter of 2022. As of today, December 3, 2021, construction of all 72 turbines have been completed. First electricity production has been achieved by 34 turbines. The main reasons for the delay are challenging weather conditions which has effected the progress of the installations and Covid-19 related issues which has restricted both travel possibilities for personnel and led to delays in delivery of components. The delay is expected to have a negative impact on Eolus’ profit margin for the construction of the project.
