arkema (AKE) Key Developments

Arkema S.A. Introduces New Rilsan S Polyamide

Arkema S.A. has introduced Rilsan S, a new bio-sourced polyamide 6.10 range, partially processed from castor oil. Manufactured at its Zhangjiagang facility in China, it closes the gap between long-chain polyamides and PA6/PA6.6. Rilsan S offers an alternative to long-chain polyamides and PA6/PA6.6 while benefiting from Arkema's specialty polyamides differentiation in terms of innovation, quality, service and 70 years' experience in polyamides. Arkema's PA6.10 is closing the gap between PA6 and PA6.6 on the one hand, and long-chain polyamides (PA10.10, PA10.12, PA12, PA11) on the other, which are already part of Arkema's product range. In addition to good processability and high abrasion resistance (comparable with PA12), Rilsan S offers good chemical resistance to fuels, coolants, lubricants, greases and oils, as well as fuel and CO2 permeability, while it exceeds the long-chain polyamides' thermal resistance and rigidity, in particular when reinforced with glassfiber. Zinc chloride resistance is fair, even if not matching the tremendous performance of long-chain polyamides. Highly versatile for many assembly processes, Rilsan S can offer weldability both on PA6/PA6.6 and on long-chain polyamides. Thanks to this unique and patented formulation expertise, Arkema is able to produce any type of PA6.10-based alloys, all offering excellent bonding properties towards all types of polyamide materials. Furthermore, Rilsan S offers incomparable dimensional stability when considering PA6/PA6.6. Finally, Arkema's Rilsan S consists of up to 62% renewable carbon, contributing to reducing the consumption of non-renewable resources. Rilsan S also benefits from what sets Arkema's polyamides apart in terms of quality, services (it qualifies for the exclusive Rcycle offer of service which covers the collection, sorting and recycling of waste, and the development of a range of recycled polymers), and technical possibilities. The various Rilsan S grades already available cover most applications in the field of transport (in particular for fluid transfer quick connectors), monofilaments and injection molded parts for automotive, sports or electronics applications.

Net income - Group share was EUR 42 million compared to EUR 65 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share was EUR 0.57 compared to EUR 0.99 a year ago. EBITDA was EUR 237 million compared to EUR 201 million a year ago. Adjusted net income was EUR 57 million compared to EUR 76 million a year ago. Adjusted earnings per share was EUR 0.78 compared to EUR 1.17 a year ago. Cash flow from operating activities was EUR 34 million compared to EUR 60 million a year ago. Intangible assets and property, plant, and equipment additions was EUR 64 million compared to EUR 90 million a year ago. The company provided earnings guidance for the second quarter of 2015. For the quarter, the company expects its EBITDA to grow in second quarter. For the full year, on the basis of euro/dollar rate of 1.25, CapEx should amount to around EUR 450 million, with variation of EUR 0.10 of this rate would have an impact of close to EUR 50 million on the total amount of CapEx. The tax rate for the year should be, at least, close to the higher range of the guidance that provide, which is at a 30%.
