NNIT continued to execute on the carveout of the Group’s infrastructure business, sustained the efforts to consolidate global delivery capabilities in Q3 2022, while seeing improved earnings in line with expectations.
Financial highlights for the third quarter 2022
Group revenue increased 5.7% (-1.3% organic) to DKK 738 million, primarily due to acquisitions and moderate growth in the Life Sciences Solutions and Cloud & Digital Solutions business units.
The operating profit before special items increased to DKK 30 million from DKK 21 million in Q3 2021 driven by an improved utilization rate following capacity adjustments. As a result hereof, the operating profit margin increased to 4.1% before special items from 3.0% in Q3 2021, and from -1.5% in Q2 2022.
Special items amounted to DKK 50 million mainly comprised of restructuring costs, including costs related to the divestment of the Group’s infrastructure operations.
The Group’s infrastructure operations remain classified as continuing operations due to the current state of the business and the ongoing carve-out work.
NNIT continued to execute on the carveout of the Group’s infrastructure business as well as selected parts of its Cloud & Digital Solutions business unit.
