Brenntag 2011 earnings soared, growth seen in 2012

February 22/2012

(marketwatch) -- German chemicals distributor Brenntag AG said Tuesday sales and earnings soared in 2011, primarily due to higher prices and volumes, as well as acquisitions, and the company projected growth in all relevant segments for 2012.

After-tax profit rose to EUR279.3 million in 2011, up 91% from a year earlier, with EUR277.4 million attributable to shareholders. In 2011, earnings per share jumped 84% to EUR5.39 versus EUR2.93 per share a year earlier. Revenue for the year was EUR8.68 billion, well over EUR7.65 billion a year earlier.

Despite a slowing global economy, industry trends indicate growth in all relevant segments in 2012.
