Clariant sets targets up to 2015

16 August 2012

The Swiss speciality chemicals company Clariant will continue to consistently implement its profitable growth strategy during the next three years, as announced by CEO Hariolf Kottmann and CFO Patrick Jany at this year’s Capital Markets & Media Day in Munich, Germany.

The goal is, amongst others, to increase the company’s EBITDA margin from 13.2% in 2011 to above 17% in 2015 and to achieve a return on invested capital (ROIC) that is above peer group average. Clariant will, in future, generate more than 70% of its sales with core non-cyclical business units. Within the existing business units, a further profitability increase is planned through performance management and functional excellence measures.
