H&R GmbH & Co. KGaA confirms preliminary figures for Q1-2022

All segments made positive earnings contributions. However, achieving an EBITDA at the level of the same quarter of the previous year is due in particular to the stable performance of our locations in the REFINING segment. In the refinery business, for example, good demand and the passing on of higher raw material and energy prices had a stabilizing effect. In the international business, the overall result was slightly below the previous year's level, but sales revenues also increased in the SALES segment. The plastics business held its ground in what is known to be an extremely difficult environment in the automotive business. Overall, after the first quarter of 2022, it can be stated that the EBITDA at the beginning of the year, in purely mathematical terms and from an optimistic perspective, suggests an overall achievement at the upper end of the guidance of EUR 80.0 million to EUR 95.0 million. However, it remains to be seen to what extent the situation in Eastern Europe can have even greater effects on the western industrial nations. In particular, a stop in the supply of Russian gas could have a lasting impact on German industry as a whole. The difficulties of many Asian countries (lockdown, port closures and transport capacities) must also be considered unresolved. The extent to which we can meet the forecast range therefore depends on the further development of the global economy. We are currently leaving it at the known targets and are reassessing the need for more precise expectations based on the half-year results.
