Text size
Borregaard's operating revenues increased to NOK 1,234 million (NOK 1,219 million)1 in the 4th quarter of 2019. EBITA adj.2 was NOK 73 million (NOK 94 million). Other Businesses improved its result, whereas Performance Chemicals and Speciality Cellulose had a decline. The operational incidents affecting production at the Sarpsborg site had a negative impact on EBITA adj.2 of about NOK 35 million.

Performance Chemicals had a favourable product mix, but reduced sales volume and higher costs and depreciation. Speciality Cellulose was negatively affected by the operational incidents at the Sarpsborg site. Other Businesses improved as a result of higher sales in Ingredients. The net currency impact was positive.

Profit before tax was NOK 30 million (NOK 84 million). Earnings per share were NOK 0.38 (NOK 0.80).
