Oğuz Erkan, CEO, commented: “Our results in the fourth quarter reflected a continued improvement in soda ash markets, highlighted by sequential revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth of 5% and 49%, respectively from the third quarter. Global soda ash demand, which saw dramatic declines during the peak of COVID-19 related shutdowns, continued to normalize in the quarter. Improved demand supported strong production levels totaling 686 thousand tons in the fourth quarter, which was in line with Q4 of 2019. Our industry continues to recover from the pandemic, and we are prepared to participate in a sustained recovery going forward.
As we endured the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, our year-end financial results understandably declined as compared to our record 2019 performance. Net sales of $392 million in 2020 declined 25% from 2019 and adjusted EBITDA of $62 million fell 55% from the prior year. Amid the challenges faced in 2020, our business performed admirably, reacting quickly to preserve liquidity and reducing operating and capital costs where prudent. The commitment of our workers cannot be overstated as our team diligently adhered to new safety protocols and several optimizing measures in our production plan, operating costs, and distribution strategy, all while also managing the operational complexity involved with our exit from ANSAC.”
