This revenue growth mainly results from a significant raise in bioethanol sales as well as from higher proceeds from the sale of food and animal feed products. EBITDA improved to a record level of EUR 94 (previous year: 66) million reaching a margin of 18.5 (previous year: 15.5) percent. Operating profit grew more than proportionally by 64 percent to EUR 70 (previous year: 43) million, which is equivalent to an operating margin of 13.8 (previous year: 10.0) percent. The 3rd quarter alone contributed EUR 33 (previous year: 14) million to this result. The main reasons for the growth in earnings are the additional contributions to operating income made by increased production and sales volumes, an early and cost-efficient hedging of raw materials as well as the higher proceeds from the sale of food and animal feed products.
