Hörður Arnarson, CEO:
“This year's operations resulted in the highest nine-month profit in Landsvirkjun's history. Profit before unrealised financial items increased by 57% from the same period of the prior year and amounted to USD 241 million. This increase can mostly be attributed to clear operating goals and an increase in prices to industrial customers. The price increase can be largely attributed to the renegotiations that have taken place in recent years. Those negotiations have resulted in the fact that most of Landsvirkjun’s customers now pay a similar price to that which they would pay in those countries that we compare ourselves with.
Cash flow was very strong during the period, with cash flow from operations amounting to USD 352 million, resulting in a net debt decrease of USD 253 million.
Power station operations were good for the first nine months of the year, while Landsvirkjun’s power generating system operated near full capacity. Meeting this surge in demand represented a challenge for the company’s employees, power stations and work processes, often under demanding circumstances due to low reservoir inflows and frequent bad weather during this past winter.
Diverse demand for electricity continues to be the case, from existing customers as well as from interesting new parties. Unfortunately, this demand can only be partially met, as the power generating system is at maximum capacity with regards to both power and energy. Power sales must be triaged under these circumstances. Meanwhile, a lot of work is going into acquiring the necessary permits for further development of power generating capacity in hydro, wind and geothermal, with an emphasis on Hvammur, Búrfellslundur and the expansion of Þeistareykir and Sigalda plants.“

SKEL fjárfestingafélag hf.: Amendment to the financial calendar and previously disclosed information4.2.2023 19:13:54 CET | Press release
The audit of SKEL’s financial statements for the year 2022, which has not been finalized, has resulted in a change of its presentation due to the company‘s transition into an investment company. Shares in subsidiaries were capitalized according to the equity method until year end 2021 but are recognised at fair value through profit or loss from the beginning of 2022. This results in a previously unrealized fair value change from 2021 of ISK 2.6 billion that was formerly accounted for directly through equity, will instead be recognised in the income statement for 2022. This change of presentation has no effect of previously announced equity for year-end 2022 of ISK 33.0-33.5 billion. Further, this does not alter the company’s ability to pay dividend. The company‘s estimated earnings net of tax will, however, increase by ISK 2.6 billion and amount to ISK 17.1-17.6 billion instead of ISK 14.5-15.0 billion as was previously announced on 31 January 2023. The company has decided to change th
