Not a surprise really. ZTF gave a similar profit warning a few weeks ago.

Be back up to 300p in two years easily.

Chemicals firm Synthomer (SYNT) looks very tempting at the current price following a big sell-off over the past year. The firm’s share price dropped from around 530p a year ago to 280p last month and saw the stock trade on nearly its lowest rating in a decade, while its level of debt compared to how much it’s earning is expected to double. But with the business on the cusp of global expansion as it aims to keep up with soaring demand for its products, investors with a long-term view may want to take advantage of the firm’s cheap valuation. The chemicals sector has historically been a good place to invest with significant share price gains over the past decade and occasionally generous dividends. But chemicals companies have been caught up by concerns over a global economic slowdown in the past year, and some in the market think this may feed into weaker demand for chemicals products. Synthomer has tried to expand significantly to keep up with demand for its speciality products, sought after due to many factors such as urbanisation, ageing demographics and stricter legislation. The firm supplies aqueous polymers to companies, which

Synthomer is also forecast by analysts at Canaccord and Numis to have a much stronger second half of this year as market conditions are set to improve. That combined with its completed upgrades to facilities in Germany and Malaysia means the firm will have greater capacity to meet demand for its products.

help create new products and boost the performance of existing ones, such as footwear insoles, condoms, packaging tapes, carpets and waterproofing products. While strong on the consumer side, investors had questioned Synthomer’s growth prospects given its lack of real penetration into the industrial market. But the proposed deal to acquire Omnova Solutions, an American speciality chemicals business operating in sectors like construction and oil and gas, could make the market reappraise Synthomer. As well as the US, Omnova has manufacturing and technical facilities in Europe, Thailand and China. Analysts at UBS believe the acquisition will help Synthomer sell more products in the US, and help it expand its facilities in Europe.

Berenberg lowers target price on Synthomer

Analysts at Berenberg reiterated their 'buy' rating on speciality chemicals maker Synthomer on Thursday following the group's "robust" second-quarter results.

Berenberg praised Synthomer for its "pleasingly uneventful" first-half results in what it labelled a "difficult period" for the chemicals sector.

"Shares are now well into their fifth year of continued improvement in PBT, and the valuation would imply a magnitude of downgrades that are simply not materialising," said Berenberg.

The German bank said Synthomer's adjusted pre-tax profits of £70.0m appeared to have been "broadly in line with expectations" and highlighted that "robust margins" in nitrile latex seemed to have offset the impact of recent insolvencies in the paper industry, a key user of styrene-butadiene.

However, the broker lowered its target price on the group's shares to 360.0p from its previous 470.0p mark on the back of Synthomer's recently announced rights issue, higher pensions liability and lower estimates for its core business.

Their lower estimates for the company's sales and earnings mainly reflected the purchase of Omnova and assumed a 1 December transaction close.

The analysts "substantially" reduced their margin and volume estimates for Synthomer's styrene-butadiene rubber latex business to reflect the ongoing weakness in the paper industry and also trimmed their volumes forecasts for the coatings-orientated functional solutions segment, with the net underlying downgrade equating to roughly 4% of underlying earnings.

Nonetheless, said Berenberg: "This pales into insignificance compared with some of the cuts to heftier estimates for industrial chemicals and is clearly at odds with robust, synergy-driven earnings growth and a single-digit P/E."
