nou diecall je lult weer eens uit je nek over het aluverhaal,het eerste half jaar is er gewoon meer verdiend aan alu door AMG,ondanks de dalende aluprijzen.
AMG Critical Materials’ revenue in the first half of the year increased by $118.4 million, or 30%, to $515.6 million, driven by improved vanadium, silicon metal, aluminum, graphite, chrome metal and tantalum prices, and higher sales volumes of vanadium, aluminum, tantalum and titanium products. Gross profit in the first half increased by $40.2 million, or 54%, to $114.1 million. The strong financial performance was driven by higher vanadium sales volumes and prices, improved chrome metal product mix effects and strong sales volumes of aluminum products. The reduction in gross profit in silicon metal was driven by lower volumes as a result of unplanned furnace maintenance during the first half of 2018.
