DGAP-Adhoc: FUCHS PETROLUB SE announces preliminary figures for the first nine months of 2020 and a new earnings (EBIT) outlook for the current financial yearSource: EQS
Taking into account the business development in the first nine months of 2020 and based on today's assessment of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, FUCHS has determined a new outlook for the financial year 2020. FUCHS expects a further improvement in economic conditions in the fourth quarter and therefore expects in the year 2020 a decline in earnings (EBIT) in the range of -15% (previously -25%).
The effects of the crisis on supply chains, production and customer demand cannot be reliably estimated currently. The new outlook is based on the assumption that there will be no major lockdowns in the fourth quarter of 2020 in FUCHS' core regions.
FUCHS is well positioned to face the crisis and has a solid financial basis. The stability and structure of the balance sheet form a sound foundation for further development. Both the low proportion of fixed costs and the high proportion of raw materials have a positive effect. This allows us to breathe flexibly with sales. In addition, FUCHS once again benefits from its worldwide presence and broad product portfolio.
The complete statement for the third quarter 2020 will be published as scheduled on
