Net profit

Net profit was ISK 456 million in 2019, versus ISK 5,420 million in 2018. In 2018, the sum of ISK 5 billion was recorded under financial income due to the sale of a 55% stake in Tempo ehf.

Equity ratio

The equity ratio stood at 57% at year-end 2019, versus 66% at year-end 2018. The equity ratio has been strong for the past two years and in line with the Company's target.

Working capital ratio

The working capital ratio stood at 1.34 at year-end 2019, down from 1.95 at year-end 2018. The working capital ratio is within the Company's targeted range.


Equity declined by ISK 1,378 million from year-end 2018. This is mainly due to a decrease in retained earnings stemming from a dividend payment of ISK 1 billion made in 2019.


Net debt/EBITDA is -0.3 for 2019 versus -2.0 in 2018. After the planned dividend payment of ISK 180 million following the AGM on 6 March 2020, the Company is expected to be closer to its target range of a net debt/EBITDA ratio between 0.5 and 2.


Investment in fixed assets totalled ISK 333 million in 2019, which is higher than in 2018, mainly due to the renewal of large equipment in the Company's hardware room.

New operating units or businesses were acquired for ISK 338 million in 2019.
