Reach Subsea has seen quarterly loss widened for the period ended December 31, 2017, explained by lower equipment utilization when compared to the corresponding period in 2016.
Despite revenue growth of close to 70 per cent, the Norwegian contractor booked loss of NOK 10 million, or NOK 0.07 per share, versus net loss of NOK 5.6 million, or NOK 0.06 per share in the fourth quarter of 2016.
