Fourth quarter and preliminary annual results 2023

Trondheim, 15 February 2024: NORBIT delivered continued growth in the fourth quarter, reporting revenues of NOK 396.0 million, an increase of 14 per cent from the corresponding quarter in 2022, supported by underlying growth in all the three business segments.

For the full year, NORBIT delivered revenues of NOK 1 518.9 million, an increase of 30 per cent from 2022.

The EBITDA result was NOK 92.1 million in the fourth quarter, representing a margin of 23 per cent. The full year EBITDA was NOK 391.8 million, representing a margin of 26 per cent.

Considering the strong performance and NORBIT’s solid financial position, the board of directors proposes an ordinary dividend of NOK 1.55 per share. In addition, the board proposes an extraordinary dividend of NOK 1.00, bringing the total dividend to NOK 2.55 per share for the fiscal year 2023.

The target for 2024 is to deliver revenues of NOK 1.7 – 1.8 billion, supported by growth in all three business segments. The EBIT margin is targeted to be in line with the level reported in 2023.

“2023 was another record year for NORBIT, in which we were able to reach our 2024 targets one year early. As we continue to grow, we accumulate references and develop skills that qualifies us to take on larger opportunities going forward”, says Per Jørgen Weisethaunet, CEO of NORBIT.

Concluding two consecutive strategy periods since the listing in 2019, NORBIT is now preparing for the next phase with an updated strategic roadmap and new long-term financial targets for 2027. The updated ambition is to deliver organic revenues in excess of NOK 2.75 billion and an EBIT margin of around 20 per cent. 

“It is very motivating to get started on a new ambition period. Setting new goals and working hard to reach them is what drives us. We are well positioned to benefit from mega trends such as the blue economy, digitalisation and increased demand for more technology “Made in Norway and Europe”,” says Weisethaunet.

The long-term target is to deliver around 30 per cent return on capital employed, with capital allocation prioritised for maintaining a solid balance sheet, investing to support organic growth, strategic M&A, and shareholder distributions.
