Iberpapel posts first-quarter net profit of €3.31 million
The Iberpapel Group posted revenue of €49.91 million in the first quarter of 2020, down 21.89% year-on-year. EBITDA amounted to €6.73 million, 29% below the 1Q19 figures, and net profit was €3.31 million, down 39%.
The first-quarter results are framed by the unprecedented health and economic crisis triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite the virtual shutdown of all economic activity, Iberpapel managed to maintain good momentum in a complex environment. The prevailing situation inevitably translated into a reduction in sales volumes (-15% in units) and revenue from power sales (-21%).
