Indorama Ventures expects revenue to grow 19% in 2013

Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited (IVL), the world’s leading vertically integrated Polyester Value Chain producer, saw revenues rise by US$ 678 m to US$ 6.78 billion in 2012. The general sentiments for commodity Polyester value chain was weak, however, operational excellence improvements, a Brownfield PET capacity addition at Rotterdam, the acquisition of FiberVisions’ global hygiene business as well as the addition of the Indorama Ventures (Oxide and Glycols) business in North America, have potentially offset the weak Polyester chain margins in Asia.

The 2012 consolidated reported EBITDA is US$ 453 million, consolidated net profit after tax and minority of US$ 148 million, consolidated operating cash flow of US$ 471 million and consolidated return on average net operating capital employed of 7%. Consolidated EBITDA declined by 19% from continuing oversupply of PTA in Asia that has weakened spreads across the value chain.

The Company believes it has seen the worst of the Asian-led weakness and expects to see a gradual rebound over the 2013-2014 periods. Therefore, the Company has recommended a final dividend of THB 0.18 for 2012, amounting to THB 0.36 for the full year 2012, an increase from 31% payout for 2011 to 38% payout for 2012.

IVL generated US$ 471 million of net cash flow from operations in 2012, compared to US$ 334 million generated in 2011. The net operating cash flow has grown in 2012 in line with investments and IVL’s liquidity ratio compares favorably with regional and global peers in chemicals despite lower earnings in 2012.

“IVL has set clear objectives for 2013 and beyond which will pave the way to achieve continued year on year growth of both Top and Bottom line,” said Aloke Lohia, Group CEO of Indorama Ventures. “IVL has continued to grow its market share in each of its segments year on year. Our strong, diversified, global platform of scale assets and competitive market reach inclusive of speciality products deliver better value to stakeholders and in turn a sustainable business.”

“We remain very optimistic about the Polyester Value Chain and IVL leadership within this chain. We are well positioned to take significant advantage as the global recovery takes place. Meanwhile, we are confident that our portfolio will continue to deliver the lowest cost quartile results,” Lohia said.

In its guidance for 2013, the company expects to grow revenue by 19% and EBITDA by 27%.
