K+S reports solid Q2 2020 results

Americas sale and restructuring of administration on track

Despite difficult conditions, K+S achieved solid results in the second quarter. Good operating performance and high cost discipline resulted in a significant increase in earnings for the Americas operating unit. As expected, revenues and earnings of the Europe+ operating unit were down year-on-year as a result of lower average prices for potash fertilizers. The corona pandemic burdened K+S EBITDA by a further € 10 million.
