The Marine Harvest Group achieved an operational EBIT of NOK 793 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to NOK 73 million in the corresponding quarter of 2012. Cash flow from operations was NOK 559 million (Q3 2012: 237 million).
This is a historical quarter for us. With the acquisition of Morpol being approved, Marine Harvest has taken a significant step in the direction of becoming an integrated marine protein provider. The strong market, combined with solid operational performance enabled good results in the quarter. The strong market outlook encourages us, and Marine Harvest is well positioned to take advantage of it. As a consequence of our good results this quarter we are proposing a dividend of NOK 0.075 per share for the third quarter, says CEO Alf-Helge Aarskog.
