Positive start in 2023 after challenging 2022
2022 has been a challenging year for NCS. The company has been impacted by cost increases, shortages and delivery issues related to materials and components, as well as high costs of energy. In addition, the wind industry, which is our largest area of business, has been challenged, which has in turn impacted our business negatively.
Cooling solutions that keep wind turbines and industrial engines at always-optimal temperatures are crucial in the energy transition, and we are satisfied that we are seeing a positive start to the year 2023. Our industrial business is growing, and the wind business is improving steadily. Energy prices have reduced, and material availability is becoming better. We therefore maintain a positive outlook for the coming years, as we expect our industrial markets to continuously expand and a significant growth in wind in the 2024 – 2025 timeframe. We also aim to maintain and strengthen our current footprint, with full supply chains both in Asia and Europe, supporting our customers need in the regions where they are.
New ownership, new structure, and new CEO
During 2021 NCS International A/S (Nissens Cooling Solutions) has transitioned into its new ownership by A.P. Møller Holding and away from K. Nissen International A/S. Furthermore, Lars Steen Rasmussen joined as new CEO from April 2022. The financial results for 2021 were in line with expectation.
Lars Steen Rasmussen, CEO Nissens Cooling Solutions: “We are going through a significant transformation by separating our organization from the old Nissens group and optimizing our set-up to future growth. Cooling solutions and Thermal management is fundamental to the energy transition, and with a more focused company we are creating a stronger supplier to serve the increasing demand of this transition”
During 2021, net revenue was DKK 1.3 billion and a result for the year of DKK 28 million. The result includes one-time costs in relation to the transformation. Operationally the company’s financials were also impacted negatively by Covid-19 driven supply chain disturbances leading to inflationary pressure on materials, energy and other input cost.
As a global leading supplier of customized cooling solutions, Nissens Cooling Solutions plays an important role in facilitating the energy transition. The long-term outlook for the company therefore remains strong, but a challenging environment with geopolitical challenges, inflation and continued supply chain disturbances is expected to impact earnings in coming 18-24 months.
