DONG Energy Halbjahresergebnisse 2016

(WK-intern) – DONG Energy hat heute die Ergebnisse für das erste Halbjahr 2016 veröffentlicht.

Der Energiekonzern konnte seine Ergebnisse deutlich verbessern.

So ist zum Beispiel der Betriebsgewinn um 19 Prozent gestiegen.

Die sehr guten Ergebnisse sind unter anderem auf das Wachstum im Bereich Windenergie zurückzuführen.

Im Juni 2016 hatte DONG Energy die finale Investitionsentscheidung für das deutsche Projekt „Borkum Riffgrund 2“ getroffen. Der Offshore-Windpark soll 2019 in Betrieb gehen.

DONG Energy half-year results 2016

Very satisfactory H1 2016, with 19% growth in operating profit

• Operating profit (EBITDA) for H1 2016 increased by 19% to DKK 12.4 billion.
Underlying profit, adjusted for one-off items, increased by 34%, driven by a
68% rise in Wind Power. The strong growth in Wind Power was partially offset by
the impact of lower gas, oil and power prices

• Adjusted ROCE (last 12 months) was 15% compared with 7% at the end of H1 2015

• Net profit for the period was DKK 6.4 billion, up DKK 3.6 billion on H1 2015

• In H1 2016, free cash flows amounted to DKK 5.3 billion compared with DKK
-1.8 billion in H1 2015. The improvement was driven by higher EBITDA, a lower
level of funds tied up in working capital and lower net investments

• Net debt decreased from DKK 9.2 billion at the end of 2015 to DKK 3.8 billion
at the end of June 2016.

Commenting on the interim financial report, Henrik Poulsen, CEO and President,
“We achieved very satisfactory results for H1 2016. The Group’s operating
profit increased by 19% compared to the same period last year, driven by strong
growth in Wind Power.

In June, we decided to invest in the German offshore wind farm Borkum Riffgrund
2, and in July we were awarded the right to build the Dutch offshore wind farms
Borssele 1 and 2.

The German and Dutch offshore wind projects are based on our strong and
differentiated business model and will contribute to the continued profitable
growth of the Group. Our winning bid for the Dutch wind farms is the result of
our systematic efforts to reduce the costs of offshore wind power – and
tangible evidence of the long-term potential of offshore wind power. With
Borssele 1 and 2, we will for the first time be below EUR 100 per MWh in LCoE.”
