- Chemical company Croda reaffirmed full-year guidance Thursday after reporting that its sales grew 3.4% in the third quarter, driven by a strong performance in the group's consumer businesses. Core business year-to-date growth was 4.7%, while sales of new and protected products reached 28.4% of total sales, with double digit percentage growth seen in personal care, the company said. In reported currency, third-quarter sales for the group were 2.9% higher and up 0.5% year to date, as the impact of currency translation headwinds moderated. The company said it was on track to deliver on its expectations for the year. 'This has been another strong, consistent quarter of growth for Croda. It is encouraging to see ongoing momentum in our consumer businesses, underpinned by innovation and our unique customer intimacy, supported by our 'value over volume' progress in Performance Technologies,' said Steve Foots, Chief Executive Officer 'We are delivering our strategy of 'Growing the Core', driving top line growth at industry leading margins to achieve superior returns, and 'Stretching the Growth', accelerating delivery across our markets.'

Strong 3rd quarter update today. Strange how a relatively high profile UK company with outstanding prospects attracts no interest whatsoever on these boards. I've held for years, very profitably.

In performance technologies, meanwhile, operating profit grew 15.2% and sales were 1.7% higher. Chief executive Steve Foots said: "This is a strong first half performance.

What's not to like? Speciality chemical company Croda International reported a record full-year profit on Tuesday as sales grew thanks to a strong performance across sectors and regions.

- Struggling small-cap fertilizer group Plant Impact said it had agreed to be acquired by Croda Europe for around £10m. Croda offered 10.57p in cash for each Plant Impact share, representing a 79.9% premium to their closing price on Thursday. 'The board has concluded that the best interests of the shareholders are served by selling the company now whilst it remains able to support its trading activities from its remaining cash reserves,' chairman David Jones said.

broadwood, the market per se is up quite strongly today. For the last few years there has been a wealth of cash "created" in the guise of quantative easing. That it is only now starting to be seen in some capital projects (road re-furbishment rail upgrade etc) means that the knock on effect to the major suppliers to such projects are starting to build their order books. This has yet to filter down to the guys on the ground floor as there are still redundancies being announced, but these are more to do with re-deployment to prepare for a changed European Union, one that may or may not have the UK as a trading partner. Croda deals with just about every type of industry and rising sentiment in markets and governments will manifest in a rising share price for CRDA

Croda International said the improving sales trend seen in the fourth quarter of 2016 had continued in the first quarter of this year. It said constant currency sales increased by 4.9%, driven by strong organic growth. Reported currency sales increased by 19.1% to £365.5 million (Q1 2016: £306.8m), reflecting sterling's continued weakness. It said the later timing of Easter was estimated to have benefited sales by approximately 1.5%. Constant currency sales across the three principal sectors rose by 5.3%. Looking ahead, an update said: "We are encouraged by the group's performance in the first quarter and, whilst we expect the exceptional sales growth seen in Performance Technologies to moderate, we remain on track to deliver continued profitable progress through 2017."

As set out at our full year results in February, our priorities for 2017 are to drive profitability through a greater focus on premium, faster growth niches; improve performance in less differentiated markets; and progress towards our return on sales targets in Performance Technologies and Incotec. We are encouraged by the Group's performance in the first quarter and, whilst we expect the exceptional sales growth seen in Performance Technologies to moderate, we remain on track to deliver continued profitable progress through 2017.

Croda, Barclays said: "The company is a major beneficiary of weak sterling, while the new US biosurfactant plant should support both growth and earnings from next year onwards. Raw material inflation is an upside risk to our forecasts, as is the deployment of the strong cash generation. We see the company as ideally positioned for bolt-on M&A."

Inflicting quite a lot of damage for one Broker rec. Credit Suisse downgraded Croda International to 'underperform' from 'neutral' but left the price target at 3,300p. The bank said Croda shares are trading at a premium to fair value given operational headwinds in 2017 and structural longer-term pressure in Personal Care as the business lifecycle matures. CS forecasts near-term earnings headwinds from upfront investment costs for the Atlas Point ethylene oxide facility, further price pressure in Omega-3 and continued portfolio downsizing. Atlas Point is Croda's new ethylene oxide facility being built in the US, which will use corn-ethanol to produce ethylene oxide, giving organic credentials to its formulations. CS noted the facility will incur circa £3m of ramp-up costs in the second half of this year as production is brought online. Credit Suisse expects 2% volume, 1% price and 50 basis points margin pressure in 2017. "We believe Croda's competitive position in Personal Care is under pressure from new entrants at both the value end (specialty chemicals) and in the company's premium portfolio," it said. CS said it forecasts flat volumes to 2020 as Croda trims its tail-end business, where greater competition is eroding the margin premium.
