LISBON, Oct 27 (Reuters) - Portugal's pulp and paper producer Navigator NVGR.LS on Tuesday announced a 40.7% drop in net profit in the third quarter to 31.2 million euros amid the tumble in global demand caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Navigator, which sells over 80% of its production in 130 countries outside Portugal on five continents, saw total sales fall 17.1% to 348.4 million euros between July and September this year.
In the third quarter of 2020, EBITDA - earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation - fell 24.6% to 70.4 million euros.
