End of smoked salmon operations in Chile

Operational EBIT for the Group was approximately NOK 900 million in Q2 2013 (NOK 231 million in Q2 2012). The previously reported charges relating to restructuring of VAP Europe of EUR 27 million and legal disputes in Chile of USD 12.3 million will be reported on lines below operational EBIT. Furthermore, Marine Harvest has resolved to discontinue the smoked salmon operations in Chile, causing a restructuring charge of USD 6 million.

Total operational EBIT per kg through the value chain for volume of Norwegian origin was approximately NOK 12.25 in the quarter.

Net interest bearing debt (NIBD) was approximately NOK 5 860 million by the end of the quarter.

Marine Harvest is encouraged by the strength of the market during Q2 and expects a strong market also during Q3.

The Q2 2013 report will be released on 21 August at 0700 CET.
