德国化工巨头巴斯夫第二季度特殊项目息税前利润暴跌77%

2020-7-30 11:21

 

柏林,7月29日(新华社)——德国化工巨头巴斯夫周三宣布,其利息和税收(息税前利润)特殊项目同比下降了77%至2.26亿欧元(2.652亿美元)在2020年的第二季度(Q2)由于“需求疲软的冠状病毒大流行。”


巴斯夫执行董事会主席马丁·布鲁德穆勒(Martin Brudermueller)说,COVID-19大流行仍然是“我们所有人面临的巨大挑战”,他指出,“这种情况是变革的催化剂,是做许多不同事情的机会”。


巴斯夫的销售额下降了12%,至127亿欧元,主要原因是销售额下降了11%。该公司表面技术和农业解决方案领域的价格上涨只能“部分抵消”这一影响。


巴斯夫的化学品和材料部门占EBIT下降的70%。农业解决方案部门的收益几乎与去年同期持平,而该公司的营养和护理部门在第二季度实现了收益增长。


对于第三季度,巴斯夫预计特殊项目前的息税前利润不会“显著改善”,原因是8月份需求下降,以及农业解决方案业务的季节性。


鉴于“经济发展的不确定性和能见度持续较高”,巴斯夫没有公布2020年全年的销售和盈利发展预测。

 

BERLIN, July 29 (Xinhua) -- The German chemical giant BASF announced on Wednesday that its earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) before special items plummeted by 77 percent year-on-year to 226 million euros (265.2 million U.S. dollars) in the second quarter (Q2) of 2020 due to "weaker demand as a result of the coronavirus pandemic."

The COVID-19 pandemic remained a "huge challenge for all of us," said Martin Brudermueller, chairman of the board of executive directors of BASF, noting that "this situation is a catalyst for change and a chance to do many things differently."

Sales of BASF decreased by 12 percent to 12.7 billion euros, primarily attributable to lower sales volumes of minus 11 percent. Higher prices in the company's surface technologies and agricultural solutions segments could only "partially offset" this.

BASF's chemicals and materials segments accounted for 70 percent of the decline in EBIT. Earnings from agriculture solutions segment nearly matched the level of the prior-year quarter while the company's nutrition and care division managed to increase earnings in Q2.

For the third quarter, BASF did not expect EBIT before special items to "improve significantly" due to lower demand in August and the seasonality of the agricultural solutions business.

Given the "continued high level of uncertainty and low visibility surrounding economic developments," BASF refrained from publishing a forecast for the development of sales and earnings for the full year 2020.
