Maersk adjust expectations for 2018 result

Maersk adjust expectations for 2018 result

07-08-2018 16:53:00


Based on the outlook for freight rates for the rest of the year and continued high bunker fuel prices, A.P. Møller – Mærsk adjusts its expectation for 2018. The new expectation is an EBITDA in the range of USD 3.5-4.2bn, compared to previous USD 4.0-5.0bn.

”We delivered good progress in Q2 on revenue, volumes and unit cost across our business, and results improved from a weak Q1. Spot freight rates have restored after a significant drop in Q2, and volumes are growing in line with market. However, we continue to encounter very high bunker prices, which we have not been able to get fully compensated for in freight rates, leading to an adjustment in our expectations for the full-year 2018”, says CEO Søren Skou.

Revenue was USD 9.5bn for APMM in Q2 2018 and EBITDA was USD 0.9bn and for the first half-year revenue was USD 18.8bn and EBITDA USD 1.6bn. EBITDA in Ocean was USD 0.7bn for Q2 2018 reflecting improved unit cost, which both in total and at fixed bunker was down by more than 5% compared to Q1 2018.

However, profitability was negatively impacted by an average bunker price increase of 28% compared to the same period last year while average freight rates were 1.2% lower.

Further details will be published in the Interim Report for Q2 2018 on 17 August 2018.
