Company announcement no. 126 – November 18, 2020
The Board of Directors for Wirtek A/S has approved the interim financial statements for third quarter of 2020 for the Wirtek Group today. The detailed interim financial statement for Q3 2020 is attached to this announcement.
Financial highlights for the period January 1 – September 30, 2020
Strong performance continues during Q3 2020
Despite the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has negatively impacted some of our clients, we can present solid growth in both revenue and profits during Q3. The level of activity for our clients is back on track after the postponement of a couple of client projects during Q2.
Revenue grew by 18% to TDKK 6.921 during Q3 2020 compared to Q3 2019 and was up 23% to TDKK 20.577 for the period Q1 – Q3 2020 compared to Q1 – Q3 2019.
EBITDA was TDKK 787 in Q3 2020 compared to TDKK 124 for the same period last year. During Q1 – Q3 2020 EBITDA grew by 193% to TDKK 2.441 compared to Q1 – Q3 2019.
An EBITDA-margin of 11,9% for Q1 – Q3 2020, compared to only 5,0% during same period 2019, attests to our strong performance this far during 2020.
Pre-tax profit (EBT) grew to TDKK 764 in Q3 2020 compared to TDKK 56 during Q3 2019 and was up by 234% to TDKK 2.316 during Q1 – Q3 2020 compared to same period last year.
Cash holdings are very solid, at TDKK 4.117 end of Q3 2020, up 218% from Q3 2019.
Outlook 2020 - expectations raised in September
See company announcement no. 123 dated 14-Sep-20
Revenue expectations for 2020 narrowed to MDKK 27 - 28, a growth of 16% - 21% compared to 2019.
Pre-tax profit expectations for 2020 raised to MDKK 2,4 - 2,7 (up from previously raised expectations of MDKK 1,9 - 2,2), a growth of 79% - 101% compared to 2019.
Main reasons for raised expectations:
COVID-19 did not impact Wirtek negatively during Q3 and is not expected to do so during the remaining part of 2020.
A new order from one of our US clients during September has positive impact on both revenue and profit in 2020.
Close-to-optimal capacity utilisation in our Romanian subsidiary.
