Asker, 27 May 2021, 06:32 CET

The first quarter of 2021 for Cambi ASA was characterised by growth in all key financial indicators compared to the same quarter last year, with revenue at NOK 108 (76) million and EBITDA before non-recurring items at NOK 5.5 (3.7) million, increases of 42% and 49% respectively.

Cambi Group accounted for the turnover increase, with revenue up 58% versus last year at NOK 90 (57) million. In Cambi Invest's Recycling subsegment, soil sales were below last year’s in the quarter due to winter conditions, but higher than expected at 25,000 tonnes. Grønn Vekst opened four new soil production sites in the quarter.

Besides going public on Euronext Growth in Oslo, Cambi reached a milestone with the first thermal hydrolysis contract in Africa, for a thermal hydrolysis pilot plant delivered to South African energy and synthetic fuels company Sasol. Among the projects secured during the quarter is the first system for UK utility Southern Water, at Goddards Green in West Sussex, and the ninth system in the USA, for Kansas City, MO.

"Cambi is gearing up for a high-activity year, with an increasing number of prospects in our pipeline, many active tenders, and several deliveries from our order backlog scheduled for the second half of this year. We are confident that the drivers will sustain industry growth and that Cambi will materialise these opportunities for the long-term benefit of shareholders", remarked Cambi Group CEO Eirik Fadnes.

Managing Director for Cambi Invest, Maarten Kanters, cited high activity levels on DBO project development in the quarter.
