Earnings Forecast
24.03.2020

Lenzing - As a result of the global COVID-19 crisis, the Lenzing Group expects
based on recent developments a negative impact on its textile sales volume. The
potential impact cannot yet be reliably estimated, as it strongly depends on the
duration of the crisis as well as its further effects on the global economy and
textile markets. Consequently, Lenzing suspends its result forecast for 2020 as
disclosed on March 12, 2020, when it expected the result for 2020 to be below
the level of 2019. In order to mitigate a potentially stronger than expected
decline in earnings, Lenzing has already started to implement cost saving
measures across its sites globally.
