IN BRIEF - A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S – Increasing 2024 full-year guidance

Tuesday, June 04, 2024

On the back of continued strong container market demand and the disruption caused by the ongoing crisis in the Red Sea, A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S (APMM) now also sees signs of further port congestions, especially in Asia and the Middle East, and additional increase in container freight rates. This development is gradually building up and is expected to contribute to a stronger financial performance in the second half of 2024.

Based on these developments, APMM upgrades its full-year 2024 guidance and now expects underlying EBITDA of USD 7 to 9bn and EBIT of USD 1 to 3bn (previously USD 4 to 6bn and USD -2 to 0bn, respectively), and free cash flow of at least USD 1bn (previously at least USD -2bn).

Trading conditions remain subject to higher-than-normal volatility given the unpredictability of the Red Sea situation and the lack of clarity of future supply and demand.

APMM will publish its Q2 interim results on 7 August 2024.

Other Media | Faro de Vigo: Europe exhausts its legislature with another 'no' to the sustainability of large fishing vessels

Tuesday, June 04, 2024

Just a few days before the future of the new Commission is decided, Sinkevicius refuses to give aid to modernize or replace the engines of ships over 24 meters in length

That the current Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries, Virginijus Sinkevicius, has been the sword of Damocles in the maritime sector these last five years is something that numerous voices that represent him within Europe, Spain and Galicia have denounced day after day. It is a legislature that will go down in history for applying restrictions to the activity without a rigorous scientific basis or prior socioeconomic impact studies, such as the veto on bottom fishing in 87 areas of the North Atlantic; of which the president of the European Commission (EC), Ursula von der Leyen, does not feel particularly proud in this regard

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Fishing and agriculture revolt against the EU tax on their fuels

Monday, June 03, 2024

Five organizations demand that the rate of 0.036 euros per liter be withdrawn

Fishermen and farmers also lose their lives in climate change. They therefore share the decarbonization objectives of a European Union (EU) established as a global champion of biodiversity. By competing inside and outside the Twenty-seven with products from third countries with lower environmental and socioeconomic demands, they appeal to the States and European authorities for protection. For their own subsistence and because they are food suppliers for European citizens who depend on the outside world for seven out of every ten fish they consume.
