CropEnergies with weaker start to the year
Adjustment of forecast to lower ethanol prices
CropEnergies AG, Mannheim, started the 2018/19 financial year with a below-average 1st quarter compared to the previous year. According to preliminary figures, revenues decreased by 17 percent to EUR 192 (previous year: EUR 231) million. EBITDA of EUR 14 (previous year: EUR 33) million was slightly less than half the previous year's figure. Accordingly, the operating result decreased to EUR 5 (previous year: EUR 23) million.
