Acerinox S A : declares EUR 109 million more profit than in 2019

02/25/2021 | 06:00pm EDT

In an especially complicated year due to the effects of the pandemic and the halting of activity in many sectors, in 2020 Acerinox recognised EBITDA of EUR 384 million (an increase of 5% compared to 2019), profit before taxes totalling EUR 132 million (5.7 times more than in 2019), and net profit after tax and minority interests amounting to EUR 49 million (EUR 109 million more than in 2019).

These profits were made possible thanks to the sound performance of North American Stainless, the American stainless steel factory, diversification through the acquisition of VDM Metals, business management and cost control in the stainless steel division (16%).

Worthy of note is the great cash flow generation, which totalled EUR 421 million and enabled the Group to pay out a cash dividend (EUR 135 million) and maintain investment payments in equipment amounting to EUR 101 million. At year-end the Group's debt amounted to EUR 278 million. Since March 2020, when debt increased by EUR 398 million as a result of the acquisition of VDM, this line item has reduced by EUR 82 million.

In the fourth quarter, the Group's production and turnover increased by 14% and 9%, respectively, compared to July-September, recognising a 50% increase in EBITDA. Furthermore, in December 2020 a dividend of EUR 135 million was paid, giving rise to a dividend yield of 7%.

Outlook

Recovery of the stainless steel market, which began in the middle of the fourth quarter, continues. The backlog in all our factories has improved. In the high performance alloys sector, an improvement is perceived and will materialise towards the end of the quarter. In this situation, we expect EBITDA in the first quarter to be slightly higher than in the fourth quarter.

Sustainability

In 2020 a specific Sustainability Committee was created within the Board of Directors. At the end of the year, a Sustainability Strategic Plan called 'Acerinox Positive Impact 360' was approved, with five pillars defined and specific lines of action established for each one.

The following 6 goals are being prioritised for 2030 (baseline 2015) in order to align the Group with the 15-year Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda:
