Expectations for 2018

”The Dry Operator business unit continued to deliver a profitable performance in a first quarter market characterised by seasonal weakening. In addition to profit taking in regional markets, Dry Operator invested in positioning of vessels into the Atlantic, which we will benefit from in the second quarter. The Tanker business once again outperformed the market generating a break-even result, and NORDEN maintains the full-year expectations despite increased uncertainty for demand growth due to rising global trade tensions. With low fleet growth and agile business units, NORDEN is well positioned to make the most of the markets regardless of this.” CEO Jan Rindbo
