Both the naphthenics and bitumen business showed a good start into the year even though the bitumen season in the Nordic countries had not started yet. Operating result before depreciation (EBITDA) amounted to SEK 151 million, compared to SEK 51 million last year adjusted for a one-off discontinued tolling agreement of SEK 262 million.
