INEOS Group Holdings S.A. has reported a fall in EBITDA for 3Q17 to €577 million, compared to €647 million for 3Q16 and €638 million for 2Q17.
The Group reports that Hurricane Harvey had a significant impact on its performance for the quarter. A number of its facilities in Texas, US, were temporarily closed due to the hurricane, resulting in some lost production volumes, particularly in the O&P North America segment.
