Peter George, Chairman, commented:
“2020 was a transformational year for Benchmark. With the restructuring complete, we now have a streamlined Group focused on the three core aquaculture areas of Genetics, Advanced Nutrition and Health, each with substantial growth opportunities and long-term positive drivers which give us optimism for the future. Our focus remains on becoming a profitable cash generative Group.
“Against a very challenging backdrop this year with Covid-19, I am proud of the Group’s resilience both operationally and financially and this reflects well on the commitment and contribution of Benchmark employees.”
Trond Williksen, CEO, commented:
“2020 was characterised by the successful delivery of an ambitious and necessary restructuring programme, and by our response and resilience to the challenges brought by the Covid-19 pandemic”.
“Our results reflect a mixed performance across our business areas with a strong performance in Genetics offset by the effects of the restructuring programme and the impact of Covid-19, especially on the global shrimp markets.”
“Moving into FY21, our focus is on becoming profitable and cash generative. Following the restructuring we are well-positioned in an exciting aquaculture industry, and we have significant potential to be realised in the years to come.”
