Andriy Perederey: The company’s key EBITDA driver was the gain from increases in the fair value of biological assets and agricultural produce (46.0% growth yoy to USD 77.0 mln) due to crop prices growth and the decrease of SG&A in 2020. We expect that strong crop price increases in 1H21 and favorable weather conditions will support the company’s P&L in 2021.
