The third quarter was overshadowed by the Norwegian government’s proposed resource rent tax of 40% on salmon farming.

Yet Another Record-Breaking Quarter for Mowi, Overshadowed by Infamous Tax Proposal

  (NORWAY, 11/9/2022)

Mowi recorded record-high revenues of 1257 million euros in the third quarter of 2022. Operational profit was 240 million euros, compared with 131 million euros in the corresponding quarter of 2021.

Despite another set of new operational and financial records for Mowi, the third quarter was unfortunately overshadowed by the Norwegian government’s proposed resource rent tax of 40% on salmon farming, or 62% including corporate tax.

 Ivan Vindheim.

“The aquaculture industry is of great importance for the future of Norway, and it is in the nation’s best interests to see it grow. However, a tax rate of 62% will put an end to most of the many significant investment plans along the Norwegian coast, leading not only to reduced local employment levels now and in the future, but also to a massive diversion of funds away from coastal communities,” Mowi CEO Ivan Vindheim said.

Until agreement has been reached on a more viable framework for the industry, Mowi has been forced to put all new structural investments in Mowi Norway on hold.

“Mowi is a global company and salmon farming is not bound by geography – it can take place in sea and on land anywhere in the world, close to its major markets. If the proposal for 62% tax is approved by parliament, Norway stands to lose its leading position within aquaculture to other countries,” Vindheim said.

Mowi reported operational EBIT of EUR 240 million in the third quarter of 2022, which is the company’s third best quarter ever up from EUR 131 million reported in the corresponding quarter in 2021. Operational revenues in the quarter were all-time high at EUR 1 257 million (EUR 1 035 million).

Total harvest volume in the quarter was 133 808 tonnes gutted weight (117 115 tonnes), slightly above guidance of 131 000 tonnes. Full-year harvest guidance for 2022 is unchanged at 460 000 tonnes. Next year, Mowi expects to harvest 470 000 tonnes.

Results within Mowi Farming were good in the quarter due not only to strong prices and record-high volumes, but also relatively stable farming costs compared with the previous quarter.

Mowi ASA is one of the largest seafood companies in the world, and the world’s largest producer of Atlantic salmon.

“I am pleased that our farming operations experienced good growth performance in sea with improved production and feed conversion ratio, clear evidence that the organisation continues to deliver good biological results. Mowi’s relentless focus on farming volume growth, cost leadership and superior sustainability credentials continues unabated,” Vindheim said.

Consumer Products delivered record-high operational profit of 30 million euros on solid operational performance across Mowi’s processing plants in Europe, Americas and Asia.

“Salmon normally fares well in challenging economic times and overall retail demand has so far continued to develop favourably. We expect the retail channel to continue to grow in the years ahead supported by unlocking the value potential in salmon as a value-added product,” Vindheim said.

Mowi produces the highest-quality salmon: its products range from whole fish, to plain or marinated fillets and steaks, to hot- and cold-smoked salmon, all the way through to succulent burgers and delicate tartars.

Mowi has recently entered into an agreement to acquire a majority stake in Arctic Fish. The company is a leading salmon farmer in Iceland, situated in the West Fjords where conditions are favourable for salmon farming.

“The acquisition follows our strategy to grow farming volumes and completes our geographical farming footprint. Icelandic salmon volumes are expected to grow significantly in the years to come, and Arctic Fish is well positioned to take part in this growth journey,” Vindheim said.

Mowi’s Board has decided to pay a quarterly dividend of NOK 1.70 per share, supported by a strong financial position and a favourable outlook.

More than 6 million Mowi meals are enjoyed around the world every day.
