Company Announcement 16 August 2017 at 4.00 p.m. (CEST)
Savo-Solar Plc updates its estimate for revenue and operating result in 2017
Savo-Solar’s order intake has not developed as expected earlier. One reason for this is the longer than forecasted decision processes of the customers, which are mainly district heating energy companies. Due to the long quiet period in investment decisions for large solar thermal systems, especially in Denmark, the competition is very intense and Savo-Solar has, after the successful tenders in France in June, lost two tenders during the third quarter of the year.
Even though Savo-Solar’s sales pipeline and quotation base is record high, the above mentioned delays in receiving new orders affect the estimate for full year. Savo-Solar updates its previous guidance and estimates that the company’s revenue for the full year 2017 is lower than in 2016 when it was EUR 5.4 million. The company’s operating result (EBIT) is estimated to be at the same level than in 2016, when it was EUR -4.5 million.
The company has previously estimated that the company’s revenue in 2017 will be higher than in 2016 and that the full-year operating result (EBIT) will be better than in 2016. The company further estimated that the operating result on monthly basis will turn positive by the end of 2017 at the earliest.
Savo-Solar will publish its half-year report for January-June 2017 on Monday, 28 August 2017.
