VERBIO increased revenues by nearly 260 million Euros and generated a positive result in 2008. Authoritative forecast for fiscal year 2009 presently not possible
Leipzig, 23 March 2009 – In the financial year 2008 VERBIO achieved consolidated revenues in the amount of EUR 666.6 million (2007: EUR 408.0 million). Due to demand and price effects, revenues were 63.4 percent or EUR 258.6 million over the prior year’s amount. Although the increased taxation of pure biodiesel (B100) in 2008 from 9 cents per liter to 15 cents per liter put heavy pressure on the biodiesel market, demand for bio fuels in total remained stable, so VERBIO was able to profit from the increased sales prices and relatively stable raw material prices.
