Clariant Announces Strategic Targets Until 2015

The Swiss specialty chemicals company Clariant will continue to consistently implement its profitable growth strategy during the next three years, as announced by CEO Hariolf Kottmann and CFO Patrick Jany at this year's Capital Markets & Media Day in Munich, Germany. The goal is, amongst others, to increase the company's EBITDA margin from 13.2% in 2011 to above 17% in 2015 and to achieve a return on invested capital (ROIC) that is above peer group average. Clariant will in future generate more than 70% of its sales with core non-cyclical business units.
