Aurubis CEO Sees Increased Profit This Year, Handelsblatt Says

Aurubis AG expects a higher-than- expected profit this year and a stable business next year with “fluctuations,” Handelsblatt reported, citing an interview with Chief Executive Officer Bernd Drouven.

Pretax profit will be “considerably” higher than the 260 million euros ($345.8 million) reported last year, he is quoted as saying. The company is looking at a number of projects at the same time and is seeking acquisition opportunities in Asia and South America, said Drouven, according to the newspaper.
