We already reported this morning which chart-technical signal marks are interesting for the hydrogen share – here it goes to 4investors chart check for the Nel ASA share.
A look at the company’s quarterly figures: Nel reports a quarterly sales decline from 148.9 million Norwegian kroner (NOK) to 147.7 million NOK. The order backlog is estimated at around 940 million NOK, while the cash on hand is 2.5 billion NOK. Before interest and taxes, Nel ASA reports an increase in loss from NOK 48.4 million to NOK 116.3 million. In addition, the crisis at the cooperation partner Nikola also made itself felt in the quarterly balance sheet of the Norwegians. As a result, Nel has to write off more than half a billion NOK on her Nikola share package, which rockets the quarterly loss before tax from 34.3 million NOK to 628.6 million NOK.
