Nordic turned in a decent set of Q1 results. Revenue increased 15% to $16.6m and net profit increased 61% to $1.5m y-o-y. 3 of the 4 segments registered positive growth while scaffolding dipped slightly thus affecting overall margins slightly. It seems like financial effects from the big Chevron and Exxon Mobil contracts will only be felt in 2016. Order book currently stands at $40.8m, an all time high in recent times.
Cashflow remains strong with $2.7m operating cashflow generated and only $0.2m spent on capex. Some cash is used to repay short term debt.
The AE acquisition will occur in June, therefore 6 mths of profits will be recognised in 2015. The acquisition is funded with $20m debt and $6m cash. Also, the company states that the Precision Engineering segment is on the look out for partnerships. Might be a sign of more M&A.
