VERBIO forecasts EBITDA of EUR 65 million for the 2019/2020 financial year.
Zörbig/Leipzig, September 20, 2019 – Based on the current level of sales and raw material prices, the planned plant utilisation and taking into account current investments, the Management Board expects to achieve an EBITDA of approximately EUR 65 million in the financial year 2019/2020 (original forecast for the 2018/2019 financial year: EUR 45 million).
The Group intends to further invest in capacity expansion and internationalisation in the current financial year. This will be financed from the Group’s own funds accumulated in prior periods as well as current operating cash flow. As a result, the Management Board expects a low balance of net debt at the end of the financial year 2019/2020.
