Q1 2024 Highlights

  • Net sales of €1.6 billion increased by 3% sequentially with improved volume momentum, most notably in Novecare and Specialty Polymers. On a year-on year basis, net sales decreased by 8% organically versus a record Q1 2023, driven by lower volumes (2%) and decrease in prices (6%), most notably in the Consumer & Resources segment and Specialty Polymers.
  • Underlying EBITDA of €363 million increased by 23% sequentially, in-line with prior outlook
  • EBITDA margin of 22.3% increased by approximately 370 basis points sequentially, driven by gross margin improvements in all businesses, most notably in Composite Materials, Specialty Polymers and Novecare, reflecting the quality of our offering and strong control of operations and pricing
  • Underlying net profit of €156 million
  • Operating cash flow of €244 million, resulting in cash conversion of 89%; Free cash flow of €157 million
  • Balance sheet: net debt reduced to €1.5 billion (versus €1.6 billion at the end of 2023) and leverage ratio of 1.0x

Dr. Ilham Kadri, CEO

"In addition to meeting our outlook for the first quarter, I am encouraged by the improved momentum we have seen since the start of the year. We saw strong margin expansion, with sequential improvements in volumes and net sales in both Materials and Consumer & Resources.. However, it is still too early to call it a trend, and we therefore reiterate our full year outlook.
"Our first five months as Syensqo have seen us ensure a smooth transition for our customers, while further sharpening our innovation and commercial priorities, fully aligned with their needs and the unique value we offer. In addition we announced new and ambitious partnerships, launched new disruptive technologies to advance our leadership positions in aerospace, electric vehicles and specialty coatings, as well as making a bolt-on investment in high value dermocosmetics to enhance our portfolio in the consumer market".

2024 Outlook

While our first quarter 2024 results benefited from improved volume momentum, supporting the strong sequential increase in underlying EBITDA, the pace of a broader macroeconomic recovery remains unclear. As a result, we reiterate our previous full year 2024 outlook ranges as follows:

  • Underlying EBITDA to be in the range of €1.4 billion and €1.55 billion;
  • Capital expenditures to be in the range of €600-€650 million;
  • Underlying Free Cash Flow in the range of €400 million and €500 million, excluding the previously announced $180 million PFAS payment to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, which was made in April 2024

As demonstrated by our performance in the first quarter of 2024, we confirm that we saw the inflection in our quarterly underlying EBITDA performance in the fourth quarter of 2023. We expect this positive momentum in underlying EBITDA to continue in the second quarter of 2024, aligned with current consensus expectations.

As previously indicated, second quarter net debt will include cash outflows related to the PFAS settlement as well as €172 million related to the dividend payment on May 31, 2024, subject to shareholder approval at the Annual General Meeting on May 23, 2024.
