Third-quarter earnings for the entire Group were higher than in the second quarter, with better results for both Viking Supply Ships (VSS) and Industrial Shipping (IS).
The combination of better contract coverage and a periodically more favorable spot market in the North-Sea Offshore market generated positive cash flow for VSS.
Viking Supply Ships extended its contract with Centrica Energy by one year, with an option for an additional year.
A settlement has been reached concerning claims for salvage remuneration in connection with salvage of the vessel Golden Seas in December 2010, resulting in an impact of SEK 7.9 M on earnings.
In parallel with cost reduction activities, work continues in Industrial Shipping to implement the growth strategy that was decided. The market base is to be strengthened in the Baltic Sea; the service offering is to become more streamlined and to cover the entire logistics chain. As part of this effort, TransAtlantic in October acquired the operations of the Finnish shipping company Merilinja and also introduced a new line service between Poland and the UK.
In conjunction with the publication of the interim report, an earnings call will be held on Friday November 2, 2012 at 09.30 am (GMT + 1) with TransAtlantic’s President and CEO, Henning E. Jensen and CFO Heléne Mellquist.
