CEO Comments
“We are pleased with our overall performance during a challenging year for the industry,” said David Rintoul, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We made good progress managing our business through the pandemic as we adjusted our production to changes in demand, while being highly responsive to our customers’ needs and maintaining excellent service levels. During the fourth quarter, we achieved sequential quarterly improvement in key metrics such as production, sales volumes, net sales, earnings per share, adjusted EBITDA, and cash from operating activities.”

“As we look forward, the environmental and economic advantages of electric arc furnace steel production position both that industry and the graphite electrode industry for long-term growth. We believe GrafTech’s leadership position, strong cash flows, and advantaged low-cost structure and vertical integration are sustainable competitive advantages. The services and solutions we provide will position our customers and our company for a better future.
As we move through 2021, we believe that the improvement in steel industry metrics will subsequently result in improved demand for graphite electrodes,” Mr. Rintoul concluded.
