Swedish term or phrase: omvänd vinstvarning

The situation is that Stora Enso has been losing money for some time and I suppose have to issue a profits warning even when making a loss

Now, they have started to make profits again albeit low so there is still a profits warning but it is "omvänd"

Stora Enso missade visserligen med ytterligare några resultatrapporter men från år 2016 vände trenden uppåt så att företaget tvingades gå ut med en ***omvänd vinstvarning***, ett angenämt problem.

How can we express this in English please. "Inverse" , "reversed" come to mind but I can't find any term on the Internet for this idea.

reverse profit warning

These terms seem to be used and understood in broadsheet journalism. The context (i.e. that it reflects an unexpected upturn) will become clear through the remainder of the text.
