Perstorp announces a capital markets day and a release date of 2015 Q1 financials

MALMÖ, SWEDEN (23 April 2015) - Leading chemicals company Perstorp announces that it will be hosting a Capital Markets Day in London, UK on 30 April 2015 and in conjunction with this day will also be releasing its 2015 Q1 financials. The presentation will be hosted by Perstorp's senior management team Jan Secher (CEO) and Magnus Heimburg (CFO), and will cover a number of recent positive company developments.

Following the successful start-up of the Valerox plant, Perstorp’s major Oxo investment, the operational improvements and financial benefits resulting from the new business and operating model announced in early 2014 and the appointment of a new management team, including Magnus Heimburg as the new Chief Financial Officer, Perstorp is taking the opportunity to update its investor base in person.

“I am very pleased with the improvements in the business and the completion of our significant strategic investment program, which is paving way for a period of strong cash flow generation and de-leveraging. This new chapter for Perstorp offers exciting opportunities to continue the positive development of the business", said Jan Secher.

The Capital Markets Day will be held at Goldman Sachs’ London Office, located at River Court, 120 Fleet Street, London EC4A 2BE on Thursday, 30 April 2015 at 2.00pm BST / 3.00pm CET/ 9.00am ET. To RSVP to the event, please contact Katy Wallington at Goldman Sachs ([email protected]). Dial-in details and materials will be posted on the Perstorp’s investor relations website ahead of the day.
