Altana: Growth and Sustainable Value Creation

The specialty chemicals company Altana Chemie has developed dynamically over the past ten years, with an average growth in sales of 13 %, of which 7 % is organic. The company aims to achieve an average sales growth of about 10 % per year in coming years. Active portfolio management is part of the growth strategy. Over the past five years nine aqcisitions were successfully concluded with a transaction volume totalling some EUR 800 million. The acquisition of the Eckart group in 2005 has increased the business volume to an annual turnover considerably above EUR 1 billion.

As stated in the third-quarter report, Altana Chemie achieved sales of EUR 985 million after the first nine months of 2006, up 58 % on last year’s figure for the same period. Adjusted for exchange rate, acquisition and divestment effects, operating growth was 11 %. Over the first nine months, Altana increased its EBITDA by 66 % to EUR 188 million, according to the company a disproportionately high result compared to growth in sales.
