AD HOC ANNOUNCEMENT PURSUANT TO ART. 53 LR

  • Q4 2023: Sales decreased by 10 % organically in local currency1 to CHF 1.062 billion against a strong comparable in Q4 2022; sequential sales increase of 4 % in local currency driven by volume growth
  • Q4 2023: EBITDA margin of 10.0 % impacted by provisions related to sunliquid® decision and restructuring; underlying EBITDA margin before exceptional items of 14.9 %
  • FY 2023: Sales decreased by 7 % organically in local currency to CHF 4.377 billion due to lower volumes despite maintaining stable pricing; EBITDA margin of 13.9 %, and 14.6 % before exceptional items
  • FY 2023: Resilient free cash flow of CHF 216 million, resulting in a 36 % free cash flow conversion rate
  • FY 2023: Distribution of CHF 0.42 per share proposed to AGM on 9 April 2024
  • Outlook 2024: In a continued challenging macroeconomic environment, Clariant targets low single-digit local currency growth and an improvement in reported EBITDA margin to around 15 % (around 16 % excluding sunliquid® operational and exceptional impacts)
  • Medium-term targets: Clariant remains firmly committed to its targets, with 2025 EBITDA margin now expected at 17 % – 18 % showing significant progress toward the 19 % – 21 % target

"In the fourth quarter of 2023, we saw sequential revenue improvement while end markets stabilized. Robust performance in the quarter was nevertheless below the strong base of the prior year, when Catalysts delivered record sales. With the imminent completion of the acquisition of Lucas Meyer Cosmetics and our decision to cease operations at the sunliquid® plant, we have positioned the company for higher growth and improved profitability, taking another step forward in our purpose-led growth strategy,” said Conrad Keijzer, Chief Executive Officer of Clariant.

1All references to local currency growth, pricing, volumes, and scope exclude the impact from hyperinflation countries Argentina and Türkiye. All references to currency include a net impact from hyperinflation countries Argentina and Türkiye.
