CEO Jan Rindbo in comment:

“In a first half-year with extreme market volatility, NORDEN delivered a strong result while acting on attractive dry cargo asset opportunities. Tanker Operator delivered an outstanding result, but H2 2020 earnings are expected to be much weaker due to lower rates. Dry Operator navigated well through severe market headwinds and is expected to generate substantial value in H2 2020. NORDEN raises its guidance for 2020 to USD 40-80 million.” CEO Jan Rindbo
