Synthomer plc

Autumn 2023 trading statement

Resilient trading in subdued demand environment, led by speciality businesses

Synthomer plc ('Synthomer' or 'the Group') today issues its scheduled update on trading since the half year results were published on 7(th) September to 31(st) October 2023.

Overall Group trading has been broadly consistent with our expectations. The key trends set out at the half year results have continued, with subdued volumes and limited visibility given the challenging macro conditions throughout the chemicals industry. Our speciality businesses have continued to deliver significantly more resilient pricing and volumes relative to our base chemical products, which are subject to increased global competition and greater negative operating leverage.

Following successful completion of the GBP276m rights issue in mid-October we have increased the focus on delivering our speciality solutions strategy, alongside our ongoing activities to preserve cash and manage near-term macroeconomic uncertainties. We have continued to reduce cost and complexity by exiting our loss-making paper and carpet activities in the US, and the reorganisation of our SBR manufacturing in Europe is now complete, enabling the process to divest our European paper and carpet operations to start ahead of plan. We have also implemented a modest step-up in investment to drive growth in our speciality end markets, principally in Asia and the USA.

As previously stated, the Group does not anticipate any improvement in customer demand for the remainder of 2023, with a risk of modest further slowdown in activity in certain base chemicals areas if market trends seen in the third quarter persist. The Group still expects to make sequential progress in the second half of 2023 relative to the first, driven principally by our previously announced self-help measures.

Commenting, Synthomer CEO Michael Willome said:

"Although the demand environment continues to be subdued across most of our end markets, the relative strength and resilience of our speciality businesses underscores the logic of our strategy. By focusing on these parts of the portfolio we will continue to reposition the Group to deliver on its substantial potential for value creation. We are confident that Synthomer's earnings power in the medium term is more than double recent run-rate levels, driven by improved market conditions, operational and commercial excellence and our ongoing strategic evolution to become a true speciality chemicals business."

Synthomer intends to report results for the twelve months to 31(st) December 2023 on 12(th) March 2024.
