In advance, analysts had expected an increase of 0.3 to 0.7 percent.

After dropping 2.24 percent last week, Borsen made a mini comeback on Monday. The main index closed yesterday, up 1.4 percent to 1149 points.

Elopak is waiting for margin pressure

Pexip head goes a day

On Monday night, it was announced that Pexip President Odd Sverre Østlie would resign immediately. Disagreement over the way forward for the company between the board of directors and Østlie must have been the reason for the separation of the two teams.

Overall, we are satisfied with the results for this quarter. Despite the fact that the salmon market is still hampered somewhat by the Corona pandemic, the market was very strong this quarter. Going forward, the outlook for the salmon market looks bleak for the rest of 2021, as well as for the first half of 2022, says Regen Jacobsen, CEO of Bacafrost. In the stock market announcement.
