Record earnings for Sappi despite challenging year
Commenting on the group's results, Sappi chief executive officer Steve Binnie said: "I am very pleased with Sappi's exceptional performance this past year. Once again, the dedication and resilience of the Sappi team shone through, this year delivering EBITDA of $1,339m, well above the previous record set in FY2000 ($1,052m). The outstanding performance was particularly noteworthy within the context of a challenging macroeconomic environment. Significant headwinds included extreme weather-related events, lingering Covid pandemic effects in China as well as extraordinary global inflation, which was triggered by geopolitical turmoil and ongoing global supply chain disruptions. Amidst this volatility, we demonstrated adaptability and persistence and remained committed to our Thrive25 strategy. 16 Nov 2022 Read more
