Net sales as of 30 September
Fine Specialty Chemicals
The Pharmaceutical Synthesis business generated sales of €94.3 million, a 1.3% increase compared to 2021 (a 0.5% decrease at a constant exchange rate). Third-quarter revenue was up sharply compared to 2021, driven by the sales of Estetrol to Mithra, a favorable EUR/USD exchange rate and the effect of price increases implemented in the past few months to offset the very significant rise in raw material and energy costs. Momentum remained very strong at the Turku site, while activity linked to R&D and intermediates was significantly lower compared to 2021.
Fine Specialty Chemicals
Net sales of Fine Specialty Chemicals totaled €61.8 million, a 25.4% increase compared to 2021 (+21.4% at a constant exchange rate). Activity held up well in the third quarter, with continued strong demand for Electronics and Cosmetics, and positive trends in Lubricants and Fine Chemicals. The rise in the costs of raw materials and energy were passed on downstream and contributed to the growth in net sales.
The PCAS Group will still generate a significant loss in 2022 due to a level of activity which remains insufficient at several Pharmaceutical Synthesis sites to cover the level of fixed costs and by inventory depreciations linked to non-compliant products.
All the PCAS Group teams, with the support of its majority shareholder Seqens for the financing of its activities and its development, remain fully committed to returning to positive results in 2023, helped by gradual growth in Estetrol volumes for Mithra.
