Danish nuclear power plant producer BWSC continues to roar ahead. In 2016, revenue went up 40 percent to DKK 2.95 billion (EUR 397 million), which is almost a tripling in five years, while the result was its best since 2010.
The result came to a profit after taxes of DKK 85 million, however this means a profit margin of just 2.9 percent. This margin is the second-lowest in recent times and far from the margins of 8-12 percent which were reached at the end of last decade. Meanwhile, the cash flows last year ended at a loss of DKK 559 million, compared to a positive DKK 66 million in the previous year, mainly due to a negative cash flow from operations of DKK 331 million.
