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.
