All-time high result

Borregaard’s operating revenues reached NOK 1,113 million (NOK 1,007 million)¹ in the 1st quarter of 2016. EBITA² increased to NOK 171 million (NOK 105 million), an all-time high quarterly result. Performance Chemicals and Specialty Cellulose both improved their EBITA, while there was a decline in Other Businesses. Currency contributed positively in all business areas. Raw material, energy and other costs were stable.

Strong result in performance chemicals and favourable currency effects

Borregaard’s operating revenues increased to NOK 1,034 million (NOK 951 million)¹ in the 4th quarter of 2015. EBITA² was NOK 101 million (NOK 92 million).

Currency developments, including negative hedging effects, contributed positively by approximately NOK 50 million. Hedging effects were NOK -54 million in the 2nd quarter. EBITA in Performance Chemicals increased to an all-time high as positive currency effects, product mix and higher sales prices more than compensated for lower raw material supply. The reduction in Specialty Cellulose was mainly due to lower sales prices, a wea...

Why MFC show potential in cosmetic applications

Over the last several years consumers have become more and more aware of the environmental impact of cosmetic products. Indeed cosmetic products end up down the drain and in the water system after a shower. The trend today is, therefore, to use natural raw materials to replace synthetic ingredients and reduce the environmental impact.
