NORDEN raises its expectations for the full-year result, and now expects profit for 2022 in the range of USD 560-640 million , up from USD 420-500 million.
In line with NORDEN’s shift in market exposure from dry cargo to product tankers during Q2, the Company has been well positioned to capitalise on a weakening dry cargo market having booked more cargo than tonnage. NORDEN also continues to benefit from an exceptionally strong product tanker market, where the Company has significant market exposure.
“In addition to ensuring downside protection in a weakening dry cargo market, NORDEN actively booked a considerable amount of cargoes at high rates, and we are now benefitting from subsequently taking in tonnage at lower rates. This is a true testament to our business model, being able to actively adjust our exposure and create value in both rising and falling markets”, says Jan Rindbo, CEO of NORDEN.
