HKScan Corporation                                   Stock Exchange Release 12 July 2017, at 9:00 am EEST


HKScan to revise its operating profit outlook

HKScan Corporation estimates its comparable operating profit (EBIT) for 2017 to stay below the previous year’s level (EUR 13.2 million). The reason for the revised outlook is weaker than expected sales and lower profitability in market area Sweden and Finland. The ramp-up costs of the new Rauma poultry production plant will also burden profitability in 2017, as earlier communicated.

Based on HKScan’s previous outlook, the Company aimed to reach the comparable operating profit (EBIT) of the year 2016.

HKScan will publish its January–June interim report on Wednesday 19 July, 2017.
