Borealis Starts off the Year 2010 with a Positive Result

Borealis AG, Vienna, Austria, announced a net profit of EUR 54 million for the first quarter of 2010, compared to a net loss of EUR 56 million in the first quarter of 2009. Despite an increase in net debt, the company’s financial position remains solid with a gearing ratio of 49% at the end of Q1, compared to 43% in Q1 2009, within the company’s target range of 40–60%.

In line with the general market trend, both feedstock prices and polyolefin market prices continue to increase. Due to this development as well as some delays in expansion projects in the Middle East, industry margins improved during the first quarter of 2010. Borealis’ positive result was also driven by an increase in sales of value added products within the company’s portfolio.
