At the annual general meeting today in Misen Energy AB the Managing Director, Mr. Göran Wolff, gave the following summarized information to the attending shareholders:

  • At last year´s AGM on 31 May 2012 the year 2012 was predicted to be a successful one for the Misen Group, both concerning production volumes as well as financial result. We can now realize that this vision has come true to a higher extent than was even expected.
    Income after financial net items amounted to 343 MSEK as compared to 110 MSEK the year before.
    Net profit per share increased from 0,58 SEK during 2011 to 1,83 SEK in 2012.
  • As we give complete financial information to our shareholders only by half and full year interim reports we have prior to today´s general meeting published a summary of the financial performance of the Misen Group during the first quarter of 2013. This information has been published in the preceding press release as of May 23, 2013.
  • There we can see that the positive financial development from 2012 is continuing in 2013. Income after financial net items was 104 MSEK as compared to 70 MSEK in the first quarter of 2012 and operating margin went up from 56,1 % to 58,2 %.
    Therefore we can with confidence look forward to a successful year also in 2013 for the Misen Group.
