Synthomer FY22 Revenues Rise; Sees Underlying EBITDA In Line With View

Synthomer Plc (SYNT.L), a supplier of acrylic and vinyl emulsions polymers, Tuesday reported fiscal 2022 revenue of 2.6 billion pounds, higher than last year's 2.33 billion pounds.

The expected underlying EBITDA for the year is in the range of 262 million pounds to 268 million pounds, in line with the Board's previous expectations as well as the company-compiled consensus of 268 million pounds.

In its post-close trading update for the year, the company noted that the deterioration in macroeconomic conditions through the second half reduced demand in its construction and coatings end markets, mainly in the European businesses.

Further, Synthomer's operations outside Europe including its Adhesives division were also affected in the last quarter.

As announced earlier, the underlying end market demand for medical gloves remains robust, but the company does not expect the current period of destocking, and hence low nitrile butadiene rubber or NBR production levels, to abate before the end of 2023.

Synthomer is progressing with its plan to deliver cash savings of between 150 million pounds and 200 million pounds by the of end 2023 from strategic initiatives and operational actions.

Further, the divestment of its Laminates, Films and Coated Fabrics business is on track to complete in the first quarter.

Synthomer plans to announce fiscal 2022 results on March 28.
