Outokumpu has completed negotiations with insurance companies regarding the property damage and business interruption at the Tornio ferrochrome production in Finland in the first half of 2017. Outokumpu will receive an insurance compensation of EUR 32 million which will be booked in the fourth-quarter financial results.

Consequently, Outokumpu revises its outlook and expects its fourth-quarter adjusted EBITDA to be higher than in the corresponding quarter in 2017 (Q4/17: EUR 82 million). Earlier Outokumpu expected its fourth-quarter adjusted EBITDA to be at a similar level to the fourth quarter of 2017.
