VERBIO increases its earnings forecast for financial year 2016/2017 following strong second quarter and based on high expected production facility utilization rates for the second half of the financial year 2016/2017.

Zörbig/Leipzig, January 12, 2017 - 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 90 million in the financial year 2016/2017 and to increase net cash by the end of the financial year to approximately EUR 120 million. In its most recent previous forecast the Company had expected EBITDA of approximately EUR 55 million and Net-Cash of EUR 88 million.

The updated earnings guidance is necessary following high overall capacity utilization together with unexpected strong operational margins in the second quarter of the first half 2016/2017 financial year, the recent increases in prices for bioethanol as well as the current good level of orders for the second half of the 2016/2017 financial year.

All the key figures will be published with the interim report for the first half-year 2016/2017 as scheduled on February 9, 2017.
