Clariant preserves profitability in first nine months of 2020 despite difficult economic environment

  • Sales from continuing operations decreased by 6 % in local currency to CHF 2.838 billion
  • Continuing operations EBITDA at CHF 419 million
  • EBITDA margin resilient at 14.8 % compared to an operational performance of 14.8 % in the first nine months of 2019
  • Outlook: in a continued difficult environment amid COVID-19 resurgence, focus on impact mitigation and performance improvement in 2020

“Over the first nine months of 2020, we successfully upheld the profitability of our continuing operations despite an exceedingly challenging environment. Although the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant negative impact on several of Clariant’s key end markets in the third quarter, the performance resilience clearly validates the success of our strategic focus on the three core specialty Business Areas,” said Hariolf Kottmann, Executive Chairman ad interim of Clariant. “The growth profile of our core portfolio remains intact despite the current economic environment and uncertain outlook. We will continue to focus on both mitigating the impact of this pandemic as well as executing our transformation program. We therefore continue to anticipate above-market growth, higher profitability and stronger cash generation.”

  • Clariant improves profitability in the first half of 2020 despite a difficult economic environment

    • Sales from continuing operations decreased by 5 % in local currency to CHF 1.945 billion
    • EBITDA margin improved to 15.0 % compared to an operational performance of 14.9 % in the first half of 2019
    • Net result for the total Group improved to CHF 90 million
    • Operating cash flow at CHF 89 million
    • Outlook: 2020 results will be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic; focus will therefore be on mitigation and cash generation

    “In the first half of the year, our continuing operations were particularly resilient and showed a strong performance in an admittedly challenging environment. Particularly the second quarter was negatively affected by influences attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic. In this difficult economic environment, our continuing operations even showed an improvement in margins. This clearly confirms the validity of our strategic decision to focus on Clariant’s three core specialty Business Areas,” said Hariolf Kottmann, Executive Chairman ad interim of Clariant. “Despite the uncertainties surrounding the current economic environment, the growth profile of our core portfolio remains undiminished. We will continue to focus on mitigating the impact of this pandemic and will progress with Clariant’s transformation program. This will enable Clariant to realize above-market growth, higher profitability and stronger cash generation.”

However, our solid quarterly EBITDA margin reflects the Group’s attractive portfolio of resilient businesses, which maintained last year’s profitability level despite the particularly difficult and uncertain environment,” said Hariolf Kottmann, Executive Chairman ad interim of Clariant. “We will continue to put all our efforts into mitigating the effects of this pandemic and in protecting the safety of our employees.

    • Continuing operations EBITDA before exceptional items softened by 2 % in Swiss francs to CHF 355 million with a 15.9 % EBITDA margin
    • One-off CHF 231 million provision for an ongoing competition law investigation by the European Commission
