Nimbus Group AB (publ) increased its sales by 7 percent to MSEK 361 (338) during the fourth quarter 2023 due to continued good sales of premium boats. Organic growth totaled -20 percent which is explained entirely by lower sales of smaller boats and external brands. The continued strategic shift towards premium boats involved restructuring and non-recurring costs which burdened the quarter. EBITA for the quarter amounted to MSEK -4 (10) and the EBITA margin to -1.2 percent (3.1). Excluding non-recurring costs, EBITA margin amounted to 1.5 percent.

Organic sales of small boats decreased by 38 percent while organic sales of premium boats were unchanged.

“The development during the fourth quarter provides clear support for our strategy which involves greater focus on premium boats. While sales of smaller boats dropped significantly, organic sales of premium boats actually remained unchanged. And this is despite the fact that the comparative quarter was also affected by both timing-related and waning pandemic effects”, says Jan-Erik Lindström, CEO of Nimbus Group.
