January 23 (Renewables Now) - Swedish wind project developer Eolus Vind AB (STO:EOLU-B) booked an expanded net profit of SEK 42.1 million (USD 4.4m/EUR 4m) in its first fiscal quarter through November 2019 as sales marked a twofold increase.

The company’s first-quarter net profit rose from SEK 1 million a year before. This significant improvement came on the back of growing sales, which jumped to SEK 294.4 million in the three months from SEK 107.8 million, Eolus said on Thursday.

In line with that, earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) climbed to SEK 52.2 million from SEK 9.7 million. The company’s board of directors proposed a dividend of SEK 1.50 per share for the reporting period, unchanged from a year ago.

More details about Eolus’ performance in the September 2019-November 2019 quarter (Q1) are available in the table.
