Figures for Q1 2020

EBITDA reaches € 201 million – outlook specified

In an interview, Dr. Burkhard Lohr, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of K+S, talks about the effects of the corona pandemic on K+S, the development of business in the first quarter as well as the outlook for 2020.

Outlook 2020: EBITDA of around €520 million expected

Weaker de-icing salt business in Europe and North America as a result of weather conditions, as well as lower prices for potash fertilizers, resulted in a revenue decline of about 14% to € 1.1 billion for the first quarter of the current year compared with the same period last year. EBITDA operating earnings for this period reached € 201 million.
