Vow has received questions suggesting that recent media coverage and an analyst report have left the impression that Vow from 2019 has misreported cost. This is not correct.

Apparently, the analysis and the media report have overlooked that the company has capitalised relevant development costs during the period. Since 2019 Vow has successfully introduced new internally generated technology and entered into new markets. For selected contracts that have required new technology, some operational expenditures related to R&D has been capitalized. High activity level and growth has led to increased working capital.

As noted in the report for the second half of 2023, the company has over time invested significantly in technology and developing new project opportunities in close collaboration with current and future customers in both cruise and landbased industries. The company is well positioned for future contracts and has a solid order backlog of NOK 1 034 million.

Throughout 2023 and in connection with the preparation of the annual accounts, Vow has also conducted a thorough review of the remaining order backlog, expected revenues and results. Measures have already been taken to reduce the cost level and improve working capital. The work of adapting the company's activity level and streamlining the business continues.
