Norden raises full-year expectations

Norden raises full-year expectations

24-09-2020 12:00:00

Due to a very strong performance in the Dry Operator business unit, NORDEN raises its expectations for the full-year 2020 Adjusted Result to USD 70-110 million (approximately DKK 445-700 million), up from USD 40-80 million.

“Dry Operator is capitalising on having proactively chartered period vessels in the last quarter combined with efficient regional positioning of these vessels during the third quarter. This has enabled the business unit to enter into contracts with significantly better margins than previously expected”, says Jan Rindbo, CEO, NORDEN.

As a consequence, Dry Operator now expects to realise an Adjusted Result for the full year 2020 above that for both 2018 and 2019, based on higher margins per vessel day as well as growth in activity levels, as measured in the number of vessel days. Jan Rindbo adds: “The Dry Operator result is created in the wake of an otherwise very challenging market environment for dry cargo and is in line with NORDEN’s strategy of following a more agile business approach, which allows the asset light business unit to capitalise on market volatility through trading-oriented operator activities.”

NORDEN’s two other business units, Asset Management and Tanker Operator, are developing in line with previously announced expectations. As announced in the Company’s new dividend policy earlier this year, NORDEN targets a dividend pay-out ratio of minimum 50% of the annual Adjusted Result. NORDEN will publish the interim report for the third quarter on 4 November 2020 as planned.
