March 02/2010

March 2 (plasteurope) -- Bayer MaterialScience was battered severely by the crisis in 2009. Sales tumbled 23% to EUR 7.5 bn, with volumes and selling prices both down 12%. EBITDA before special items fell 59% to EUR 446m. Polycarbonate sales receded by 21% to EUR 1.87 bn, polyurethanes by 25% to EUR 3.78 bn.


Group CEO Werner Wenning blamed much of last years earnings slump on the weak first quarter. Business recovered markedly as the year progressed, he said. In Q4, earnings saw a turnaround of 400%.
