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.
