VERBIO increases its earnings forecast for financial year 2018/2019 following strong third quarter and based on high expected production facility utilisation rates for the fourth quarter of the financial year 2018/2019.


Zörbig/Leipzig, April 2, 2019 - Based on the current level of sales and raw material prices and the planned plant utilisation, the Management Board expects to achieve an EBITDA of approximately EUR 95 million in the financial year 2018/2019. The Net-Cash will be reduced to approximately EUR 75 million by the end of the financial year. In its most recent previous forecast the Company had expected EBITDA of approximately EUR 80 million and Net-Cash of EUR 90 million.



The updated earnings guidance is necessary following high margins in biodiesel as well as the improved margins in the bioethanol segment in the third quarter of the current financial year and the currently good order backlog till the end of the financial year 2018/2019. The development of Net-Cash up to the end of the financial year 2018/2019 is mainly influenced by an increased volume of investments, partly due to the rapid progress of bio-methane projects in India and the USA.
