HKScan lowers its operating profit outlook

HKScan Corporation             Stock Exchange Release      21 October 2016                   at 8:00 a.m.  


HKScan lowers its operating profit outlook

HKScan Corporation estimates that its comparable operating profit for 2016 will remain at the previous year’s level or below it. The reasons for the lowered outlook are the weaker than anticipated sales performance in Sweden, as well as higher purchase prices and the scarcity of beef raw material.

HKScan previously expected that its comparable operating profit (EBIT) would improve from 2015.

HKScan will publish its January–September interim report on Wednesday 2 November.
