22 July 2022, EU: Company intends to raise full year 2022 guidance when it publishes its second quarter results.
Based on unaudited preliminary figures, Solvay announces that it expects to report net sales of around €3.4 to 3.5 billion and underlying EBITDA of €855 to €865 million for the second quarter of 2022.
The performance in the quarter was driven by both volume and pricing, helping to overcome variable cost inflation. All three segments of Materials, Solutions, and Chemicals contributed to the strong results.
Following the stronger than expected results, Solvay plans to increase its full-year 2022 guidance on July 28, 2022 when it releases its full second quarter earnings results. The increase in full year guidance will reflect a combination of confidence in short term trading momentum and potential risks associated with the uncertain macro environment.
