VERBIO forecasts EBITDA of EUR 200 million to EUR 250 million for the financial year 2023/24.

Leipzig, September 26, 2023 – Based on current sales and raw materials and energy price levels, our planned production capacity usage as well as our expectation that current uncertainties will continue, the Management Board expects to achieve an EBITDA for the financial year 2023/24 in the range of approximately EUR 200 million to EUR 250 million. Net cash at the end of the financial year is expected to fall to approximately EUR -150 million to EUR -110 million as a result of the high levels of investments planned to expand production capacities and invest in new growth areas.

VERBIO was able to generate a good result in the financial year 2022/2023 in light of the volatility in raw materials and considering the extraordinarily successful results reported in the previous year. EBITDA of EUR 240.3 million was in the range of the most recent forecast, and is the second-best result in VERBIO’s history.

Detailed information on business developments in the financial year just ended is provided in the annual report for the financial year 2022/23. The report can be viewed from September 26, 2023 on VERBIO’s website www.verbio.de.
