Kvaerner Announces First Quarter Results

Wednesday, May 15, 2002
Kvaerner announced its results for the three months ending March 31, 2002. Operating profit for the Kvaerner Group in the first quarter of 2002 amounted to $19 million, compared to a loss of $41.6 million in the previous quarter. Coming out of a difficult year in 2001, the Group has restored profitability. In the first quarter of 2002, three of the four business areas reported operating profits. Including $3.7 million of non-recurring costs related to the integration of former Aker Maritime units, operating profit in Aker Kvaerner was $9.7 million. Aker Maritime units were consolidated with effect from March. Kvaerner E&C (Engineering & Construction) reported an operating profit of $2.1 million, and Shipbuilding, $16 million. Kvaerner Pulp & Paper had an operating loss of $6.6 million during the period. The financial restructuring of the Group was successfully completed in the first quarter. Net interest-bearing debt was $113 million at the end of March. Several changes to the operational structure of the Group were completed, including the combination with the oil and gas units of Aker Maritime, the establishment of a jointly owned shipyard management company, and the move of the head office from London to Oslo. In May, further changes were introduced. Motivated by a wish to service its global and regional customers more effectively, Kvaerner announced that the oil and gas activities of Kvaerner E&C in Houston and Asia Pacific would be integrated with Aker Kvaerner. The change will allow Kvaerner E&C to address more clearly the needs of its customers and concentrate its efforts on improving its existing global operations.
