Deficit for Kid

The interior chain turned sharply downwards to a negative result in the first quarter of this year. This is shown in the quarterly report that was presented on Thursday morning.

The share ended the day down 2.67 percent.

– All in all, a weak report, and we expect to lower the 2023 estimates for ebitda by around 5 percent on the basis of mainly higher operating costs, write Pareto analysts Joachim Huse and Gard Aarvik in an update.

The result before tax ended at minus NOK 57.4 million in the quarter. This is down from a profit of 11.5 million in the first quarter of last year. Operating profit before depreciation and amortization (ebitda) fell to NOK 56.6 million, also a sharp decrease from NOK 110.4 million at the same time in 2022.

Already in April, the chain reported a turnover of NOK 605 million in the quarter. It was relatively stable overall compared to last year. The Kid stores saw growth, while the revenues of the Hemtex stores declined.

Results rush

Several of the companies on Oslo Børs have presented their quarterly results in the morning hours.

  • Elliptic Labs fell 10.28 percent. The software company, which works with artificial intelligence (AI), among other things, increased its losses slightly in the first quarter compared to the previous year.
  • Codelab Capital, formerly known as Patientsky Group, fell 15 percent. The company, which is now a holding company with Uniscal as one investment, had an adjusted ebitda of minus NOK 6.5 million in the first quarter of 2023, compared to NOK 0.7 million in the same period the previous year.
  • 5th Planet Games fell 3.45 percent. The game developer had slightly lower revenues in the first quarter than at the same time last year, the quarterly report shows. Operating profit remained relatively stable, while losses before tax were reduced as a result of lower finance costs.

On the other hand, Nekkar rises 4.59 per cent. The offshore supplier almost doubled its operating profit, operational ebitda, to NOK 23 million in the first quarter.
