Hex Q3 2022

3 November 2022: Hexagon (excluding Hexagon Purus) delivered NOK 1 080 (848) million in revenues and an operating profit before depreciation (EBITDA) of NOK 68 (110) million in third quarter 2022. The profitability was impacted by significantly higher costs of production due to inflation and supply chain challenges.

In the third quarter 2022, Hexagon Purus generated NOK 222 (103) million in revenues and recorded an EBITDA of NOK -92 (-80) million. Revenue growth was primarily driven by the hydrogen distribution segment. The market outlook is expected to remain strong, short and long term.

Hexagon Purus remains fully consolidated in the Hexagon Group accounts, with Hexagon Composites currently retaining 73% ownership.

Hexagon Group, including Hexagon Purus, generated NOK 1 243 (875) million in revenues and recorded an operating profit before depreciation (EBITDA) of NOK -24 (30) million.

“We continued to deliver strong revenue growth in the third quarter, up 42% year-over-year,” says Jon Erik Engeset, CEO of Hexagon Group. “Mitigating actions to combat the challenging operating environment are being implemented to improve margins in 2023.”

Together with clients and partners, Hexagon is finding ways to make near-zero and zero emission energy solutions available and affordable while delivering on its purpose of driving energy transformation. REPower EU and the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act are expected to significantly drive additional demand for Hexagon’s solutions in the coming years.
