Navamedic ASA: Navamedic Q1 2014 results

Positive start of the year for Navamedic

Navamedic ASA (OSE: NAVA) today announced the Company's first quarter 2014
financial results. Navamedic repeated its sales record from the previous
quarter and increased revenues by 26 per cent compared to the first quarter
last year. EBITDA ended at NOK 2.0 million, compared to NOK 3.5 million last
year.

However, Navamedic had a non-recurring extraordinary income of NOK 2.6 million
in last year's first quarter. Adjusted for this item, profitability from
operations in reality improved by NOK 1.1 million from last year's to this
year's first quarter. The first quarter EBITDA corresponds to a margin of 4.6
per cent, while the EBITDA margin last year (before the one-off income) was
2.6 per cent.

Navamedic showed a pre-tax profit of NOK 0.2 million in the first quarter of
2014, against NOK 1.9 million last year (including the one-off income).

"We saw a significant sales increase in all of our segments, while we also
work intensely to improve margins through e.g. product portfolio composition
and an active pricing policy. Navamedic will continue to show a sales growth.
However, our main focus going forward is on further improving profitability,"
Navamedic CEO Håkan Josephsson said.

For further information, please contact interim CEO Håkan Josephsson,
