Revenue in third quarter ended at MNOK 62.9 compared to MNOK 55.1 in Q3 2020. The revenue increase was driven by higher sales volume (+12%) and sales prices, offset by a significant stronger NOK vs EUR compared to last year.
Third quarter EBITDA ended at MNOK 4.6 (Q3’20: MNOK 9.5) a 52% decrease compared to similar quarter last year. The lower EBITDA in Q3’21 was driven by a stronger NOK vs EUR, increased raw material prices, record high international freight costs due to global constraints following Covid-19 and significantly higher electricity prices in the quarter compared to last year.
The net profit for the group ended at MNOK 1 (Q3’20: MNOK 4.5) for the third quarter of 2021.
