Multiconsult fourth quarter and full year 2023

Multiconsult ended the year with a good quarter. The performance was influenced by high activity, increased capacity through organic growth, and overall good operational performance throughout the year.

14. February 2024

Net operating revenues grew by 20.8 per cent to NOK 1 361.5 million in the quarter, and by 14.6 per cent to NOK 4 802.5 million for the year. The robust organic revenue growth observed has continued and came in at 16.1 per cent for the quarter. EBITA for the full year came in at NOK 419.5 million (408.5), while EBITA adjusted for one-offs was NOK 446.2 million, a 9.3 per cent margin.

Multiconsult’s fourth quarter EBITA adjusted for one-offs amounted to NOK 145.1 million, reflecting a margin of 10.7 per cent. The result for the fourth quarter was impacted positively by a higher billing ratio, higher average billing rates and improved project execution. One-offs related to the announced share ownership programme and restructuring cost had a negative impact on the results. As a result of successful onboarding and training of new hires, the billing ratio came in at 71.8 per cent, 1.5pp higher than the comparable quarter last year. Order intake during the year was NOK 6 926 million and NOK 1 431 million in the fourth quarter, resulting in a diversified and strong order backlog going into 2024. The board of directors proposes a dividend of NOK 8.00 per share to be paid as ordinary dividend for 2023.
