Lenzing reports significant revenue growth and solid earnings for the first half-year

The Lenzing Group’s revenue grew by 25.2 percent year-on-year to reach EUR 1.29 bn in the first half of 2022, primarily due to higher fiber prices. The earnings trend mainly reflects the cost trend in global energy and raw material markets, which affected the whole of manufacturing industry. Energy, raw materials and logistics costs rose sharply once again in the reporting period, after cost pressure had already risen steadily throughout the 2021 financial year. As a consequence, earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) decreased by 13.3 percent year-on-year to EUR 188.9 mn.
