Indorama Ventures’ profit up 74percent
For the second quarter of 2016 Thailand-based Indorama Ventures’ profit after tax and non-controlling interests rose 74 per cent year-on-year driven by margin recovery in the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) segment and contributions from additional feedstock volumes. The company’s blend of focused businesses is expected to transform it as one of the most competitive producers in its space and provide it downside protection on volumes and integrated margins while preserving its upside potential as the industry recovers.
