Operating profit without
one-time items (EUR million)
Customers’ needs were met by strengthening digital and content services
Nordic Morning Group’s net revenue was EUR 104.9 million (EUR 106.6 million). The decline in net revenue was due to the lower demand for printed products, the contraction of the net revenue of the Content business area, and the depreciation of the Swedish krona.
The Group’s operative result was EUR -0.2 million (EUR 3.4 million). The result included a significantly lower amount of non-recurring items than in the previous year at EUR -0.2 million (EUR 2.4 million). Operating profit before non-recurring items was EUR -0.1 million (EUR 1.0 million). The operating profit was weighed down by profitability issues related to the sheet-fed offset printing business in Sweden.
The Group’s equity ratio was excellent at 48.6 percent (51.4 percent).
In order to meet changes in customer needs, Nordic Morning renewed its service strategy and reorganized its operations into three business areas starting from January 1, 2015.
The digital services were strengthened by acquiring the Sweden-based Ottoboni, a company specializing in business and service design, and by expanding its operations to Finland. Content services were strengthened by establishing the strategic content agency Sitrus Agency AB in Sweden by merging JG Communication AB with Citat AB, and also by establishing Sitrus Agency Oy in Finland.
