Stock Exchange Release 3 November 2015:

Nurminen Logistics updates its outlook for 2015:

Nurminen Logistics expects its net sales, operating result without exchange rate changes and earnings per share to decline significantly from the 2014 levels. The main reasons for decline in net sales are sale of Nurminen Logistics Heavy Oy’s shares and the depreciation of the rouble. If realised, the planned fleet sales will have a positive impact on cash flow and financial position. The effect of fleet sales on the result depends on the rouble exchange rate at the time of the transaction. The predictability of the operating result involves significant uncertainty due to the development of the rouble exchange rate in the end of the year. Exchange rate fluctuations have a significant impact on the reported net sales and operating result.

Interim Report 6 August 2015:

The company’s outlook published in stock exchange release on 5 May 2015 is unchanged:

Stock Exchange Release 5 May 2015:

Nurminen Logistics expects its net sales, operating result and earnings per share to decline from the level of 2014. If the company’s plan to sell its railway wagons will realize, it will have a strong positive effect on operating result. Forecasting operating result include significant factors of uncertainty due to the development of rouble exchange rate in the beginning of the year and its outlook on the end of the year.

Financial Statement Release 19 February 2015:

Nurminen Logistics expects market conditions to remain similar to last year. A slight increase in Finnish exports appears possible, particularly through the ports of Helsinki and Kotka, while a decrease in imports also seems likely. Under the prevailing circumstances, Finnish exports to Russia are likely to remain at the same level as in the fourth quarter of 2014, with Russian domestic traffic remaining at the same level as in 2014. Changes in the rouble exchange rate have a significant impact on the company’s profitability. 

In the present situation, the forecast horizon is short. Nevertheless, we expect our net sales, operating result and earnings per share to improve in 2015 compared to 2014, based on our increasingly diverse clientele and improved operational efficiency.

Nurminen Logistics expects that both its operating result and earnings per share will improve compared to 2013, but that its net sales will fall short of the level of 2013 due to the decline in volumes in rail transport between Finland and Russia resulting from the crisis in Ukraine and the sanctions imposed on Russia.

The company’s unchanged long-term goal is to increase its net sales annually by approximately 20% on average, including acquisitions, and to reach an operating profit level of over 7%. The situation of the financial markets delays achieving of the growth objectives in the short term.

There was a sudden change for the worse in Finnish economy during November and December 2008. Export volumes declined in all sectors and also import volumes declined strongly in the end of the year. The volumes of Finnish foreign trade have not decreased since the beginning of the year but both exports and imports are on a significantly lower level than in the corresponding period last year.

The net sales of the continuing operations in year 2009 are expected to be lower than in 2008 and the company’s operating profit margin is expected to decline.

Stock Exchange Release, 21 April 2009:

Nurminen Logistics Plc expects operating result for the first quarter of 2009 to be slightly negative and net sales to be clearly weaker than in the last quarter of 2008.

As the company has already earlier announced, the net sales of the continuing operations in year 2009 are expected to be lower than in 2008 and the company’s operating profit margin is expected to decline.

Stock Exchange Release, 2 April 2009:

Nurminen Logistics Plc expects net sales and operating profit for the first quarter of 2009 to be clearly weaker than net sales and operating profit of the last quarter of 2008. This is due to the rapid decrease of the volumes of the Finnish foreign trade. The company has announced on 25 February 2009 that it will adjust its operations to match the market situation. The company´s cost savings goal for the year 2009 is EUR 1.5 million.

In year 2009 the net sales of the continuing operations are expected to be lower than in 2008 and the company’s operating profit margin is expected to decline.

Financial Statement Release 2008, 25 February 2009:

Due to the recession in global economy the economic outlook and market situation are very uncertain. Therefore, the company will not give a net sales or operating profit level forecast for year 2009. On the long-term the company’s goal is to increase its net sales annually by approximately 20% on average, including acquisitions, and to reach an operating profit level of over 7%. The situation of the financial markets may delay achieving of the growth objectives in a short term.

There was a sudden change for the worse in Finnish economy during November and December. Export volumes declined in all sectors and also import volumes declined strongly in the end of the year. Also investments are expected to decline during 2009.

Despite the quite satisfactory outcome of the financial year 2008 the company must be prepared for a possible decline in net sales by adapting its operations and cost structure to the general volume of economy.   

There is an exceptional amount of uncertainty also in the development of Russian economy. That as well as the rouble exchange rate is connected to the world market price of oil.  Devaluation of rouble hinders the outlook of Russian imports but on the other hand it improves the possibilities of Russian exports as well as foreign companies’ investment opportunities in Russia. As trade becomes more versatile and foreign investments grow, there will be new opportunities for logistics service providers like Nurminen Logistics.

Extensions of Niirala and Luumäki terminals and the opening of logistics centre in Vuosaari harbour on 28 November 2008 have positive effects on the outlook of Nurminen Cargo. The extension of Niirala terminal increased terminal space by 4,000 square meters to a total 18,000 square meters. The extension of Luumäki terminal increased terminal space 3,400 square meters to a total 11,700 square meters. The logistics centre in Vuosaari has in the first phase 38,000 square meters. As a result of these investments, investments in railway wagons, and due to the rationalization of its operations, the company has a strong competitive position when economy starts to grow. On the other hand the costs of these investments hamper the company’s profitability in the current economic situation.

The outlook of Nurminen Heavy is mostly affected by the volumes of mechanical engineering industry and its project cargos. The outlook for mechanical engineering industry has weakened recently and it remains to be seen how its backlog will develop. The market situation of mechanical engineering industry will after some delay also affect Nurminen Heavy’s operations.
