As to sales, they grew by 0.4 per cent year on year in the third quarter, to CAD 164.2 million (USD 125.3 million) but they declined by 3.1 per cent in the first nine months, to CAD 446.3 million (USD 340.5 million).

As a percentage of sales, the adjusted EBITDA represented 18.6 per cent versus 18.0 per cent in the first nine months of 2017, a result that, according to the company, reflects strong sales mix, cost efficiencies and favourable net foreign exchange.

The company pointed out that strong prices and increased landings for frozen-at-sea (FAS) shrimp and favourable sales mix for clams in the January-October period were offset by lower available supply and competitive conditions for scallop associated with increased US supply as compared to the same period in 2017. 

The gross margin as sales percentage for the third quarter of 2018 improved to 20.3 per cent versus 17.0 per cent in the prior year. Gross margin as a percentage of sales  improved to 18.6 per cent versus 18.1 per cent in the prior year.

Clearwater highlighted that during the analysed period, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) announced their decision to cancel the process to issue a fourth clam licence and confirmed that the remaining 25 per cent of the clam quota would be issued to Clearwater for 2018 and 2019.
