Perstorp Holding AB (Publ.) parent company for world leading specialty chemicals company Perstorp today announces its Q2 2019 Interim report.
Net sales decreased with 9% to SEK 3,065 m (3,382). Excluding currency effects, sales prices in the second quarter were lower than the corresponding quarter last year in EMEA and APAC. The decrease was linked to both lower raw materials and weakening market conditions. Organic volume-based sales growth was -6% year-on-year. EBITDA excluding non-recurring items amounted to SEK 365 m (510). EBITDA-margin excluding non-recurring items was 11.9% (15.1).
