2019 Business highlights Materials

  • Materials continued its ongoing transformation into a high- growth,higher-margin specialty business, focused on Improved Health & Living, Green Products & Applications and New Mobility & Connectivity
  • Materials reported minus 8% organic growth, with volumes recording minus 5% and prices minus 3%. The lower prices fully reflect lower input costs
  • DSM's specialty portfolio demonstrated its relative earnings resilience. Due to the strong performance of the higher margin businesses (especially Dyneema), good margin management, cost control and some benefit from currencies, Materials reported almost flat earnings in 2019
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin was 18.5% (including 0.2% impact from IFRS 16) compared to 17.6% achieved in the previous year
  • In 2019, DSM acquired the specialty materials business of the Indian company SRF Ltd.

  • Resins & Functional Materialsreported minus 6% organic growth. Business conditions in Coating Resins stabilized versus 2018: while the European end-markets remained weak, the business experienced a small uptick in the Chinese Building & Construction sector. Functional Materials saw its sales of specialty coatings for glass fiber optic cables decline in the second half of the year. The 4G network investments started to fade out in anticipation of the upcoming infrastructure investments for the 5G networks, which led to temporarily lower sales
  • Dyneemareported minus 4% organic growth. The focus on strong growth in the high margin personal protection business resulted in lower volumes in other segments. The shift had a strong positive effect on the margins. New production capacity was started up by the end of the year, which will allow the business to continue its growth

Disclaimer to the AGM presentation

  • This presentation may containforward-looking statements with respect to DSM's future performance and position. Such statements are based on current expectations, estimates and projections of DSM and information currently available to the company. DSM cautions readers that such statements involve certain risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict and therefore it should be understood that many factors can cause actual performance and position to differ materially from these statements. DSM has no obligation to update the statements contained in this presentation, unless required by law.
  • DSM's full year 2019 results are reported against a set of prior year figures that included a significant additional benefit from an exceptional supply disruption in some key vitamins that DSM clearly communicated all through 2018 as the 'Temporary Vitamin Effect'. In order to provide as much transparency as possible, DSM has shown this separately, calculating growth against 2018 total results including this special event, as well as the comparison excluding this event. Of course, from the perspective of monitoring the progress of DSM business, the comparison to prior year's 'underlying business' is the only meaningful one. For this reason, in this AGM presentation, we compare the 2019 results versus the 'underlying business' as estimated and reported in 2018.
  • One more comment on comparisons: Please note that DSM adopted the new IFRS 16 standard on Lease Accounting as per its effective date of 1 January 2019, while our 2018 figures are not restated.
  • More details on DSM's 2019 performance and a more comprehensive discussion of the risk factors affecting DSM's business can be found in the company's 2019 Annual Report, which can be found on the company's corporate website,www.dsm.com
