Perstorp Holding AB (Publ.) parent company for world leading specialty chemicals company Perstorp today announces its Year End report for 2015.
Net sales amounted to SEK 11,149 m during the period January to December 2015, compared with SEK 11,084 m for the same period in 2014, an increase of 1%. Organic volume-based sales growth amounted to 1% for the period January to December compared to the same period last year. The organic volume-based sales growth have been negatively affected by both the production issue in the second quarter as well as the scheduled maintenance shutdown in Stenungsund in the third and fourth quarter. Adjusted for the scheduled maintenance shutdown the organic volume-based sales growth was about 3%.
“Decreasing raw material prices has, to some extent, impacted our customers purchasing behavior and resulted in a degree of restraint. We have noted similar market dynamics before and have no reason to reevaluate the long-term underlying demand for our products or our leading position within global niche segments. Instead we view this as a question of timing”, says President & CEO Jan Secher.
