Commenting on the group’s results, Sappi Chief Executive Officer Steve Binnie said: “I am pleased with the continued recovery in our results over the past nine months. EBITDA improved progressively from a low of US$26m in our third quarter of 2020 due to the impact of COVID-19 to US$98m for the first quarter of our 2021 financial year. I am confident that our recovery is on track despite the ongoing negative affect from COVID-19.”
