Investment summary

Q120 EBITDA fell by 12.4% (vs. Q119 – the strongest quarter in 2019), to €80.6m (however it rose 23.7% vs. Q419). The standout performance was power & gas, which increased profits (versus Q119) thanks to an expansion of the supply and the renewable businesses and a significant increase in thermal spark spreads (+55%). Although FY20 will be challenging for Mytilineos the current share buy operation underlines management’s confidence in the business and emphasis on cost control, the sourcing of competitively priced gas and the growing renewable business should mitigate some of the impact of COVID-19. Beyond FY20, the further growth of the renewable and supply businesses, cost reductions and the commissioning of a new CCGT plant (Q421) should provide a boost to profits.
