Highlights:

· The Maersk Group delivered an underlying profit of USD 426m in the third quarter of 2016.

· All business units generated free cash flows of a total of USD 736m and the Group maintains a strong financial position with a liquidity reserve of USD 11.8 bn.

· The result was positively impacted by continued strong operational performance and cost reductions in both Maersk Oil and Maersk Drilling.

· Maersk Oil increased underlying profit through continued operational efficiency increases and cost reductions and break-even is now reduced to below USD 40 per barrel for 2016.

· Maersk Line gained market share with a volume growth of 11%, while continuing to improve network utilisation and maintaining unit costs below 2,000 USD/FFE.

· APM Terminals lifted Q3 performance from previous quarters due to stronger performance in key gateway terminals and cost saving initiatives.

· The Group still expects a result significantly below last year (USD 3.1bn) and specifies an expected underlying result below USD 1.0bn.

 

The Group continued to be significantly impacted by market imbalances, leading to sustained low container freight rates and a low oil price environment.
