Statement by Jens Bjerg Sørensen, President of Schouw & Co.We saw healthy demand in the third quarter, both generally and at portfolio company level. The combination of a healthy sales, reasonable margins, good cost management and positive developments for raw materials drove us to produce solid operating profit and a historically good third quarter.
Our two largest companies, BioMar and Fibertex Personal Care, are only to a limited extent affected by global economic developments, but our other portfolio companies are feeling the effects of the volatile economic climate. Our main focus for all our portfolio companies is profitability and maintaining our market positions. We have only limited investment needs and are approaching a period in which we will generate strong cash flows.
