Clariant confirmed mid-term targets 2015 and further shed light in the continuity of the businesses beyond 2015 at its Capital Markets Day 2013 on 28 June in London and its Media Day 2013 on 8 July in Zürich.
Both events highlighted the sustainable profitable growth strategy with a well-positioned portfolio. Performance, growth and innovation will be the key drivers for Clariant’s continued success story beyond 2015.
The dedicated media event included presentations by Hariolf Kottmann (CEO), Patrick Jany (CFO), BU Heads Michael Willome (BU Head ICS) and John Dunne (BU Head OMS), as well as breakout sessions with Mathias Lütgendorf (Member of EC), Christian Kohlpaintner (Member of EC), Martin Vollmer (Chief Technology Officer) and Ralf Zerrer (Head of Global Marketing ICS).
“The investments into R&D of the last two years are now becoming visible. The innovation pipeline is constantly growing and currently has a sales potential of more than 1 billion Swiss francs by 2017”, CEO Hariolf Kottmann said. “Combining Clariant’s innovation strength with a clear focus on customers and markets, we will be in an even better position to exploit the potential of our R&D pipeline.”
The repositioning of Industrial and Consumer Specialty to a customer-driven business and the growth opportunities of Oil and Mining like in alternative oil recovery fields were another key topic of the main event.
Breakout sessions focussed on synergies between Clariant group services and the businesses showcasing some of the most recent successes in the development of its product pipeline, such as its crop care adjuvant Synergen® or its de-emulsifier Phasetreat®, an award-winning product in oil services.
The Capital Markets Day took place on 28 June, 2013 in London, the Media Day on 8 July, 2013 in Zürich. Clariant will also host a Capital Markets Day event in New York for our US investors on 11 July, 2013.
