Nynas reports first quarter 2017

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.

"After a difficult year in 2016 the first quarter of 2017 showed the first signs of improvement. Demand was strong for both the naphthenics and bitumen business and margins for our naphthenic specialty oils improved compared to last year," commented Gert Wendroth, President and CEO of Nynas AB.
