AMSTERDAM, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Dutch speciality chemicals
company DSM on Tuesday beat analysts' expectations
despite a 1% drop in third-quarter core profit to 383 million
euros ($446.4 million), as industrial demand for its plastics,
fibres and other materials picked up after the deep slump caused
by the coronavirus pandemic.
Analysts polled by the company on average had predicted
adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and
amortisation (EBITDA) would drop to 369 million euros.
