Russia invasion of Ukraine and its ramifications are not limited to Eastern Europe but shook the financial market and disrupted the global economy. It has the potential to reverse decades of progress for globalization and growth. In the midst of such a brutal and senseless conflict, where entire energy markets are being recalibrated, the significance of a single company’s first quarter results pales,” said Øyvind Eriksen, President and CEO. from Aker ASA.

The increase in value of Aker’s Industrial Holdings portfolio from NOK 3.9 billion in the first trimester for NOK 71.5 billion mainly due to the increase in the value of Aker BP and Aker Solutions. The value of Aker’s financial investment portfolio amounted to NOK 13.4 billion at the end of the first quarter, compared to NOK 12.5 billion according to December 31, 2021.

“Our portfolio companies continue to demonstrate their ability to adapt to volatile market conditions and drive growth. As uncertainty looms on many fronts, our way forward is – as always – both to strengthen and use our industrial base for responsible and sustainable value creation,” says Eriksen. “Aker’s net asset value increased by NOK 4.9 billion for NOK 74.7 billionor a recording NOK1,006 per share. The increase is largely due to growth in the oil and gas segment, where Aker BP contributed with an increase of NOK 7.9 billion of the quarter, excluding dividend. More than one company is contributing to our results, however, I am encouraged by the overall development of our portfolio, which reflects the strong activity and industrial development underway.”
