Skuld hit by more claims from carriers

Norwegian Skuld achieved a consolidated result of USD 5 million in the first nine months of the year, a significant decline compared to the same period last year and a result affected by more claims from carriers.

Norwegian marine insurer Skuld was impacted by a series of major claims from carriers in the last three months, according to the company's 3rd quarter interim report. Even though the company finished with a consolidated bottom line of USD 5 million, the result still represents a significant decline compared to the same period last year, where the company achieved a result of USD 31 million.

A development caused by, among other factors, an increased number of claims in the 3rd quarter of more than USD 1 million, which also leads to a negative result on the insurance business, a deficit of USD 6.5 million, says Skuld in a statement.
