According to the forecast published in January, sales will amount to EUR 126 to 134 million and EBITDA to EUR 97 to 102 million. This does not yet include revenues from the cooperation with Oxy, which may be incurred from Q4 2022 onwards.

There was also unrealized income of EUR 4.4 million as of 31 December 2021. Oil and gas hedging to hedge price risks resulted in a loss of EUR 14.3 in 2021 (previous year: gain of EUR 12 million).
