Main events inQ3 2021

In Q3 2021, the Trifork Inspire sub-segment averaged more than 25,000 daily views on the GOTO YouTube tech channel and total number of views since inception increased to 26.8 million. In addition, the sub-segment saw increased interest in inspirational workshops and education. While there were no in-person conferences in the third quarter, preparations started for two hybrid GOTO – conferences in the fourth quarter 2021, to be held in Copenhagen and Amsterdam.

In the Trifork Build sub-segment, all major business areas continued to grow, with particularly high activity in Digital Health and Smart Enterprise. Vilea, the Swiss company acquired by Trifork in May 2021, was succesfully integrated and strengthened Trifork's position as a provider of Smart Enterprise solutions in Switzerland.

In the Run sub-segment, Trifork continued to develop its cyber protection products. Hosting and Security almost doubled their revenues compared to the same period in 2020. At the same time, Trifork Operations in Switzerland completed the installation of the first hardware in its new operation center and is now operational and ready for the first customers.

In Q3 2021, the Trifork Labs segment invested in Visikon, a digital health start-up specializing in animated videos that give patients a better treatment overview. While Trifork’s expertise is in patient data, security and integration, Visikon’s concept fits well with Trifork's ambition to always support patients throughout their medical journey. Trifork Labs now owns 22.5% of Visikon. In addition, Trifork Labs invested in Develco, a company that develops solutions in IoT (Internet of Things), wireless communication and embedding software in electronic devices. Trifork Labs now owns 40% in Develco.

As announced in Company Announcement 25/2021 (Report of the quarter ending 30 June 2021), Trifork is continuing its strategic review in relation to Dawn Health A/S. Since 2020, Dawn Health has operated as a critical supplier of software as medical device to the life science industry. By 2022, Dawn may take on the role as a legal manufacturer, helping large industry players navigate the maze of global requirements in developing regulated software, while significantly reducing complexity, time to market and investments.

One option available to Trifork, is to de-consolidate Dawn Health by arranging an investment by a new investor in that company, which could lead to an acceleration of Dawh Health’s product development
and growth. If such a transaction is completed, the company will be deconsolidated from the Trifork segment and reported in the future as a Trifork Labs investment. According to Trifork’s accounting policies, such a deconsolidation could have a positive impact on EBITDA for the Trifork Group, but would be treated as a special item and not included in the Trifork segment adj. EBITDA reporting. In accordance with its accounting principles, Trifork will only report on such impact as and if the strategic review leads to a transaction.

Financial outlook for 2021

Guidance for the full year 2021 remains unchanged at revenue of EURm 150-155, Trifork segment adjusted EBITDA of EURm 27.5-30.0 and Trifork Group EBIT of EURm 13.0-15.5.

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.
