HKScan Corporation             Stock Exchange Release      13 January 2017                    at 2:00 p.m.  

HKScan lowers its operating profit outlook

HKScan Corporation estimates that its comparable operating profit (EBIT) for 2016 will remain at EUR 12–14 million mainly due to the weakened profitability of market area Sweden. The comparable operating profit (EBIT) for the previous year was EUR 21.5 million.

In the stock exchange release published on 21 October 2016, HKScan estimated that its comparable operating profit (EBIT) for 2016 would remain at the previous year’s level or below it.

HKScan will publish its financial statements bulletin for 2016 on 8 February 2017.
