Q3 2018: Outlook above DKK 3bn reaffirmed

We are pleased to reaffirm our full-year outlook for an EBITDA above DKK 3bn, more than 10% up from last year. Our new Mediterranean freight routes are performing as expected when acquired in April. In northern Europe, however, businesses and consumers require clarity on Brexit for growth to continue.

DFDS Outlook 2018

European growth is still expected to be positive but at a lower level than previously foreseen, meanwhile the UK economy continues to be exposed to the uncertainty of Brexit.

The Group’s revenue is expected to increase by around 10% in 2018. The outlook range for EBITDA before special items has due to the slowdown in European growth been narrowed to DKK 3,000-3,100m (2017: DKK 2,702m) from previously DKK 3,000-3,200m.

Investments for 2018 have been lowered by DKK 300m to DKK 4.7bn.
