Brenntag SE again raises forecast for the financial year 2021

The Board of Management of Brenntag SE (ISIN: DE000A1DAHH0), the global market leader in chemicals and ingredients distribution, today decided to again raise the forecast for operating EBITDA for the financial year 2021 previously increased in June 2021.

After a very strong first half year 2021 and based on the continued strong business development, Brenntag now expects an operating EBITDA in the range of EUR 1,260 million to EUR 1,320 million for the financial year 2021 (previously: EUR 1,160 million to EUR 1,260 million).

The updated forecast takes into account organic growth, the expected efficiency gains from the implementation of the transformation program "Project Brenntag" and the contribution to earnings from acquisitions that have already been closed. It is based on the assumption that exchange rates will remain stable on today"s level.

In its updated forecast, Brenntag assumes that the current exceptional market environment will continue at least until the end of the year and that there will be no significant changes in the macroeconomic environment as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in the further course of 2021.

The interim report of Brenntag SE for the third quarter of 2021 will be published on November 4, 2021.
