eWork Scandinavia AB (publ) announces Interim Report, January - September 2014
“Very largely, the third quarter featured strong profit performance and eWork’s move into the engineering consultant segment. The start-up of our new MSP deal with ABB Sweden is a major undertaking, where we’ve now made a positive start to consultant deliveries. Simultaneously, sales and order intake were up by 34%.”
Abstract from the Commentary of the President and CEO, Zoran Covic
Third quarter 2014 compared with 2013
Net sales increased by 34% to SEK 1,041.9 million (775.8).
Operating profit increased by 80% to SEK 10.8 million (6.0).
Order intake was SEK 1,138 (845), up 30%.
Profit after tax per share after dilution was SEK 0.48 (0.28).
eWork commenced a large-scale collaboration with ABB Sweden, and secured new framework agreements from Kammarkollegiet (the Swedish Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency) and the City of Gothenburg.
Market seasonality was unusually protracted after the summer, but was offset by a brisk conclusion to the quarter. eWork’s demand indicators continue to point towards a cautious positive tendency for the remainder of the year.
First nine months 2014 compared with 2013
Net sales increased by 25% to SEK 3,324.9 million (2,661.9).
Operating profit increased to SEK 36.7 million (33.3).
Profit per share after dilution was SEK 1.67 (1.52).
eWork judges that it continued to win market share throughout the period, mainly because of growth on MSP contracts, but also due to a higher transaction frequency on competitive tenders.
