Nordic Modular Group AB 2010
- The group’s net sales fell by 7 percent to SEK 474 million (511)
- Rental income decreased SEK 9 million to SEK 241 million (250)
- EBITDA was lower than that of the top year of 2009 and amounted to SEK 181 million (228).
However, the earnings are the third-best that the group has had so far.
Comments from the Group Chief Executive Per Johansson
” All in all, 2010 was a long haul. The order inflow was improved, but with our long lead times there is always a delay before such an improvement can result in an increase in sales. Moreover, as far as Temporent is concerned, it always takes time for new rentals to catch up with the constant flow of returns. Therefore, the group’s sales figures fell, and as a consequence even EBITDA fell from SEK 228 million to SEK 181 million. EBITDA still amounted to an entire 38 percent of sales, which in spite of everything must be seen as evidence of the strength of our business model.”
” Right now, there are many indications that the upswing we are experiencing will hold. Therefore, my assessment is that we face a period of gradual increase in sales and profitability.”
