Due to the ongoing European slowdown, expected revenue growth is now around 6% (previously: 6-8%).
To reflect a reduced risk of a no-deal Brexit occurring in 2019, the outlook range for EBITDA before special items is narrowed to DKK 3.55-3.75bn (previously: DKK 3.5-3.8bn), (2018 restated to IFRS 16: DKK 3,589m).
DFDS’ main Brexit focus is now on informing small and medium sized companies about how they can and need to prepare for Brexit.
