Lenzing: The immediate effects of the COVID-19 crisis further increased price pressure on textile fibers across the entire product range. As a result, revenue of Lenzing Group declined by 25.6 percent to Euro 810.2 mn in the first half of 2020. In addition to price effects, Lenzing also felt the decline in demand for textile fibers in all regions. The slightly higher demand for fibers in the medical and hygiene segments reduced the losses, but could not offset them. The earnings development essentially reflects the decline in revenue. The implementation of measures for structural earnings improvements in all regions and making use of the short-time work model, which was temporarily introduced by the Austrian Federal Government, mitigated this negative effect. EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) fell by 46.6 percent to Euro 96.7 mn in the first half of 2020. Net profit for the period amounted to Euro 1.5 mn (compared to Euro 78.8 mn in the first half-year of 2019).  Stefan Doboczky, Chief Executive Officer of the Lenzing Group. "Strategically, we are still fully on track and the implementation of our key projects in Thailand and Brazil is progressing according to plan. The successful conclusion of the financing agreements for the construction of the pulp plant in Brazil was a highlight of the first half of the year", says Doboczky. Whilst it remains difficult to give a precise outlook for 2020, Lenzing assumes from today's perspective that the revenue generation and operating performance of the remaining two quarters will exceed those of the second quarter.
