Company activity
Barcelona,

In line with the guidance disclosed on 2019/12/06 for the first half of 2019, Ercros has reached an ebitda of EUR 29.7 million and a net profit of EUR 10.5 million. These figures are lower than those obtained in the same period of 2018 (35.7% and 62.7%, respectively), however, we must note that in the first half of 2018, results were particularly high.

Profit declined due to the downward trend of the cycle in the chlorine-alkali sector, which began in mid-2018. Sales were up reaching EUR 345,446 thousand, 3.2% higher than in the same period of 2018, due to higher volumes after the addition of new capacity in chlorine and caustic soda, PVC, polyols and synthesis and fermentation of pharmaceutical products despite falling sales prices.
