Thordur Sverrisson, CEO: "During the year there has been very positive development in the operations of Nýherji and its domestic subsidiaries, and the performance is excellent in the third quarter of 2010. The demand for computers and technical equipment has increased, and sales are above plan. After a considerable decrease in the number of software consultants, a balance has been achieved with the demand for domestic software services, and these operations are now profitable. Nýherji increased its share capital by ISK 120 million at nominal price and sold it to investors at an price per share of 7.0. At the same time agreements with the company's commercial bank on restructuring of long-term loans were signed. The overall impact of the measures is that the company's equity will be strengthened by nearly ISK 1 billion. The increase in share capital, sale of real-estate and decrease in debt will lower interest-bearing debt by ISK 2600 million. At the conclusion of these measures, Nýherji's financial position will again be strong, and the company's equity ratio will exceed 30% at the end of the year. The company's main emphasis will be on further improving performance with the continuing rationalization of operations." Further information Thordur Sverrisson, CEO Nýherji, Tel. +354 893 3630.
