Scana lndustrier ASA, supplier of products & system solutions to energy-related businesses, including the offshore sector has released its 2012 financial report.

Scana lndustrier ASA has companies in Norway, Sweden, China, U.S., Poland, Singapore, Brazil and South Korea with the Group’s head office in Stavanger. Their key business is supplying products and system solutions to energy-related businesses. This encompasses oil and gas, other energy and marine businesses related to the offshore market.

Global recession caused a reduction in revenue in 2009 and 2010. 2011 did show a slight increase in revenue and 2012 ended on the same level as 2011. Revenue amounted to NOK 2,039 million with an operating loss of NOK 152 million. A write downs of goodwill and postponed tax benefits have charged the accounts with NOK 77 million.

The order inflow of NOK 1,965 million is a decrease of 16% compared with 2011. The order reserve at the end of the year was NOK 1,113 million.

Going concern
The challenges for the Group as a result of the financial crisis and the subsequent European debt crisis have been greater than the Group expected. This is due to the scope and duration of the market decline, coupled with a very strong Norwegian and Swedish Krone.

There is uncertainty as to whether the Group will be able to comply with the adjusted loan conditions related to EBITDA in 2013 and the market development. However, the Board assesses the Group to gradually regain profitability through a well diversified and niche oriented product portefolio that are leading in their market segments, and through ongoing and completed strategic and operational initiatives.  In this regard, the private placement, which was completed in February 2013, and the planned repair issue, combined with the adjusted loan conditions incl. a grace period in amortisations, are important.

The newly negotiated loan terms require that share issues with an aggregate net proceeds of NOK 135 million are implemented. Of this amount, a private placement with gross proceeds of NOK 100 million has already been completed. The subscription period for the subsequent repair offering of up to NOK 67.9 million will begin in early May.
