Interim report 2 2018, Q2


Good performance continues in the first half

NIBE reports continued good sales and earnings performance for the first half of 2018.

 

  • Sales rose by 13.6% to SEK 10,233 million (SEK 9,009 million)
  • Profit after net financial items rose by 18.2% to SEK 1,031 million (SEK 877 million)
  • Earnings per share amounted to SEK 1.54 (SEK 1.29)
  • Acquisition of 60% of US element company BriskHeat Corp, 51% of British company CK Fires Ltd and Alfa Laval’s business for district heating/cooling systems

 

“We’ve had a positive first half-year with continued good growth in both sales and earnings. General demand is relatively good in Europe as well as in North America and Asia, mainly due to low interest rates,” says Gerteric Lindquist, CEO of NIBE.

 

“We see that the transition to a more sustainable way of life is on the rise in ever increasing societal sectors. This development fits our business areas perfectly: NIBE Climate Solutions’ intelligent sustainable climate solutions for all property types, NIBE Elements’ intelligent system solutions with sustainability profiles and NIBE Stoves’ products with high combustion efficiency and low emissions.”

 

“Our strong product programme and our business philosophy are timely with their focus on sustainability and energy efficiency. Even though it’s difficult to make predictions in the current business climate, we remain cautiously optimistic about 2018 thanks to stable profitability and good financial preparedness for acquisitions,” says Gerteric Lindquist.
