Perstorp Q1 Interim report 2018 now available

Perstorp Holding AB (Publ.) parent company for world leading specialty chemicals company Perstorp today announces its Q1 2018 Interim report.

Net sales, for continuing operations, increased 8% to SEK 3,680 m (3,413). Sales prices in Q1 continued to be higher than the corresponding quarter last year linked to higher raw material prices and improved pricing. Organic volume-based sales growth was, excluding BioProducts, flat year-on-year.

“The market conditions remained solid in the first quarter of 2018 and Perstorp has demonstrated another strong result. EBITDA excluding non-recurring items for the first quarter amounted to SEK 607 m (571), which is on a record-high level and the sixth quarter in row with improved year-on-year EBITDA”, says Perstorp President & CEO Jan Secher.
