In the third quarter 2016 Hexagon Composites generated NOK 266.2 (256.9) million in operating income and made an operating profit before depreciation (EBITDA) of NOK 4.6 (-31.0) million. Operating profit (EBIT) was NOK -12.4 (-43.8) million and profit/loss before tax came to NOK -18.4 (-56.0) million.
Operating results in the third quarter were impacted positively by a 52% growth in revenues within the Low-Pressure segment versus the same period last year. However weak sales volumes of Mobile Pipeline ® hamper overall profitability for the Group. The realized cost initiatives executed towards the end of 2015 have a positive year-over-year impact on results.
