- Sales for the first half of the year amounted to €160 million, and the EBITDA stood at €0.3 million.
- The company has implemented a financial restructuring plan in its main business units.
- TUBACEX is finalizing an ambitious Strategic Plan in order to play a key role in the leadership of the global transition towards cleaner energy.
Llodio, 27th July, 2021. TUBACEX has presented its results for the first half of 2021 today, marked by the fall in activity in its main demand segments during the first part of the year. Sales for the first half of the year amounted to €160 million, and the EBITDA stood at €0.3 million, figures that are a far cry from those obtained in the same period of 2020.
The low backlog with which the Group started the year following a 2020 with an extremely low order intake has led to low levels of activity in all of the Group’s units worldwide; with a particular impact on the plants in Alava, which are pending the solution of the restructuring process implemented globally by the Group, and a return to activity.
This financial restructuring plan undertaken by the Group in its main business units is preparing the organization to address the challenges faced by the company in a market context dominated by the energy transition.
The CEO of TUBACEX, Jesús Esmorís, considers that “faced with a crisis in the Oil&Gas sector, exacerbated by the global pandemic caused by COVID-19 and the acceleration of the economy’s decarbonization objectives, TUBACEX has done its homework regarding a structural reduction of its costs and is working on strategic positioning that will enable us to adapt to the new reality”.
In this respect, the company is immersed in the design of a new Strategic Plan in order to play a key role in the transition towards cleaner energy, such as gas, which is expected to be essential in this transition. “We have made progress in improving our positioning as a supplier of solutions in the energy sector, leaving the focus on volume behind and highlighting added value”, declared Esmorís.
