Clariant: Focuses on Value Creation

Clariant International Ltd, Muttenz, Switzerland, provided an update on its strategy to reach the mid-term targets 2015 on the occasion of its annual Capital Markets Day. The focus of the event was on growth and innovation, substantiated by an insight into recent developments in Crop Care, Personal Care and Oil & Mining Services.

With the integration of the growth businesses Catalysis & Energy and Functional Minerals and the planned divestment of five low growth, low profitability businesses, Clariant’s adjusted portfolio has a high exposure to markets with future perspectives and strong growth rates. In those markets, the company has competitive positions and a superior pricing power. This is reflected in a significantly higher earnings quality.

In order to create further value, investments into R&D and innovation have been constantly increased.

For the remainder of the current business year, Clariant will focus on accelerating top-line growth, finalizing the portfolio measures as well as maintaining a high cost discipline.

Clariant reconfirmed the 2015 targets of an EBITDA margin before exceptionals above 17% and a return on invested capital (ROIC) above peer group average. Beyond 2015, the company strives for continuity, reflected in an above GDP top-line growth and a sustained high profitability.
