Adjusted ebitda (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation) was up 11.9 per cent to €42.6 million from €38.1 million.

Total reported an 11.1 per cent rise in adjusted earnings per share to 5.52 cent. It said the interim dividend would be increased by 15 per cent to 0.736 cent per share.
