REVENUES AND RESULTS
The Group achieved operating revenues of MNOK 483 in the third quarter of 2021, the best third quarter in the Group’s history. The Group’s operational EBIT in Q3 2021 was MNOK114, an improvement of MNOK 66 compared to the same period last year. The increase in revenues and EBIT is mainly attributable to larger harvested volumes in Q3 2021 (+2 330 t) and higher achieved prices for the farming segment (+NOK 10.2) compared to the corresponding quarter last year. In addition, total revenues and EBIT was positively influenced by acquisitions made in Q2.
Måsøval harvested 7 265 t gutted weight in this quarter. This represents an increase in harvested volumes of 47 percent compared to the corresponding quarter in 2020. The increase in harvested volumes comes as a consequence of the new MTB acquired in 2020and 2021.
At the end of Q3 2021, total assets were MNOK 2 145, a decrease in total assets of MNOK81 since the previous quarter. This is mainly caused by a decline of MNOK 67 in biological assets.
