Oxea, a leading global supplier of Oxo Intermediates and Oxo Derivatives, announced for Q4 a strong earnings increase yr-on-yr. The increase in revenues and earnings can be recognised across the entire product portfolio and all regions. On a full year basis, revenues of €1459M were only slightly yr-on-yr (-1.4%) despite a still soft world economy and overall challenging macroeconomic conditions during 2012. EBITDA of €193 million was 5.4% below prior year mainly due to a very strong first quarter of 2011 with high export margins and one-off gains from steep raw material price increases over the average cost value carried in inventories.
