Protecting the health and safety of our employees and their families remains our top priority. Despite difficult market conditions, our business delivered solid operating results in the quarter, particularly Muscle Shoals in meeting strong packaging demand. We generated Free Cash Flow of €54 million in the first half of 2020. We also strengthened our financial profile by increasing our liquidity to €949 million. I am very proud of the way our team responded swiftly to the crisis by reducing our costs and cash expenditures and demonstrated the flexibility and resilience of our business model.
Mr. Germain continued, "There remains significant uncertainty around the extent and duration of the effects of the pandemic. With the significant actions we have taken and the diversity of our markets and customers, I am very confident in our ability to navigate through this crisis. Based on our current view of market conditions, we expect to generate positive Free Cash Flow in 2020."
