"We continue to see growth in revenues and profitability as we make good progress on our project portfolio. This highlights the strength of our project execution model, and I am pleased with the overall performance in the quarter", said Kjetel Digre, Chief Executive Officer of Aker Solutions.  

Key developments 

Revenue in the first quarter increased to NOK 11.5 billion compared to NOK 7.1 billion in the first quarter of 2023, representing a growth of 61 percent. EBITDA increased to NOK 987 million, compared to NOK 247 million in the same quarter last year. This was driven by solid operational performance, as well as large oil and gas projects in Norway reaching profit recognition milestones in the quarter.   

Order intake for the quarter ended at NOK 7.0 billion, or 0.6 times book-to-bill. The secured order backlog at the end of the quarter stood at NOK 68.7 billion.  

Including financial investments in liquid funds, not treated as cash under IFRS, the net cash position was NOK 9.4 billion at the end of the quarter.  

Outlook and financial guiding  

The outlook remains positive for Aker Solutions. The high order backlog, mainly made up of projects to be executed in the well-proven alliance model with Aker BP with balanced risk-reward profile and upside potential through shared incentives, offers good visibility on activity levels going forward.   

Based on the secured backlog and market activity, full year revenue in 2024 is now expected to increase about 30 percent compared to 2023. The underlying EBITDA margin, excluding net income from OneSubsea, is expected to be in the 6-7 percent range for the full year of 2024.
