Lantmännen is the largest ethanol producer in the Nordic region and referenced most of its ethanol sales contracts to the monthly average of Platts' ethanol benchmarks during the infringement period. Therefore, the level of Platts' ethanol benchmarks could directly influence the revenues that Lantmännen received from its ethanol sales during that period.
