Norway Royal Salmon ASA (NRS): Operational and financial update Q1-2022

Report this content

Norway Royal Salmon ASA ("NRS") will release the full report for the first quarter 2022 on 25 May 2022. Ahead of the report, the company hereby provides an operational and financial update. The numbers are estimates, and final numbers will be presented in the Q1 2022 report.  


- NRS estimates an Operational EBIT of MNOK 115 in the first quarter of 2022 due to a low price achievement in the quarter and certain non-recurring costs.

- NRS has during the first quarter experienced more biological challenges with winter wounds in the Norwegian operations than normal. NRS has for welfare reasons, therefore chosen to accelerate the harvest of the affected fish. This has resulted in a low superior share and lower price achievement than the prevailing market prices might suggest.

- Based on the above, NRS also reduces the projected harvest volume in Norway for 2022 from 35 000 tonnes to 32 000 tonnes gutted weight.  

More information will be given in connection with the presentation of the full Q1 2022 report.
