Bo Nilsson, CEO of Nets, said:
"We are pleased to report that Q3 2016 was another strong quarter, with 6% organic revenue growth and 18% growth in EBITDA before special items, compared to the same period last year. This results in an EBITDA before special items margin of 35.5% year to date, which is better than expected. Based on the results we raise the guidance for 2016, Medium-term targets are unchanged".

"The growth in EBITDA before special items was mainly due to increased volumes and positive impact from the transformation programme coming through. The DKK 831 million negative net profit in Q3 2016 was as expected significantly affected by special items, costs related to the refinancing and exchange rate adjustments. Had the new post-IPO capital structure been in place from 1 July 2016, the adjusted net profit would have amounted to DKK 417 million in Q3 2016".

Outlook for 2016
The 2016 Guidance at 9 November is changed compared to 13 September. The medium-term guidance is unchanged.

Targets Guidance for 2016 at 9 November Guidance for 2016 at 13 September
Organic revenue growth 6-7% Around 6% on the basis of adjusted 2015 revenue of DKK 6,928 million
EBITDA before special items margin 35 - 36% Around 35%
Capital expenditures incurred (% of revenue) Capex will be affected by e.g. investment in new data centre and, hence, expected to be at an elevated level of around 10% of net revenue Capex will be affected by e.g. investment in new data centre and, hence, expected to be at an elevated level of 10-12% of net revenue
Special items (including IPO-related expenses) DKK 630 million, of which approx. DKK 290 million are IPO related DKK 800 million, of which approx. DKK 475 million are IPO-related
Net interest-bearing debt / EBITDA before special items At or below 3.4x Net interest-bearing debt / EBITDA before special items at year-end 2016 slightly below an expected IPO leverage of 3.75x
