MOL recorded a net loss in the amount of 138 million euros in the first quarter of 2020, compared to a profit of around 138 million euros in the same period last year, mostly due to increased foreign exchange and inventory losses. Significantly weaker forint gave it a big, albeit mostly unrealized, foreign exchange loss in the first quarter, while a negative current cost of supply modification, due to large inventory holding losses and end-of-period net realizable value adjustments, also weighed. The company recorded a 253.5 million euros financial loss in Q1 2020, a huge rise from 12 million euros financial loss in Q1 2019. Total revenues rose by 3.5 % to some 3.34 billion euros. Cost of raw materials and consumables climbed at a slower pace, increasing by 1.9 % to 2.54 billion euros.
