CropEnergies with significant increase in revenues and earnings in the first nine months of financial year 2022/23

Mannheim, 11 January 2023 – In the first nine months of the 2022/23 financial year (1 March 2022 - 28 February 2023), CropEnergies AG, Mannheim, generated revenues of EUR 1,177 (previous year: EUR 781) million. The main reason for this were higher sales volumes and sales prices overall, both for sustainably produced ethanol and for the food and animal feed products sold. As the significantly higher revenues for the products sold more than compensated for the negative impact from the higher raw material and energy prices, it was possible to more than double both the EBITDA of EUR 267 (previous year: EUR 125) million and the operating profit of EUR 235 (previous year: EUR 94) million. Ethanol production in the first three quarters of the financial year 2022/23 increased compared to the previous year and reached 811,000 (previous year: 778,000) cubic metres.
