Borregaard ASA: EBITDA1 of NOK 442 million in the 1st quarter

Borregaard’s operating revenues reached NOK 1,975 million (NOK 1,850 million)2 in the 1st quarter of 2024. EBITDA1 increased to NOK 442 million (NOK 435 million). The result in BioSolutions increased while results in BioMaterials and Fine Chemicals were lower compared with the 1st quarter of 2023.

The result in BioSolutions increased due to higher sales volume and reduced energy costs. In BioMaterials, higher sales volume was more than offset by lower sales prices and higher wood costs. Fine Chemicals had a lower result due to low bioethanol deliveries and increased costs. The net currency effects were slightly negative for the Group.

Profit before tax was NOK 261 million (NOK 292 million). Earnings per share were NOK 2.01 (NOK 2.32).

- We are pleased with the strong result improvement in BioSolutions and the positive sales volume development for the Group, says President and CEO Per A. Sørlie.
