Kemira's updated guidance now indicates that operative EBIT is expected to be between EUR 34-35 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Main reasons for the lowered operative EBIT guidance for the fourth quarter of 2013 are as follows.
- Lower-than-expected contribution from 3F. Kemira closed the acquisition and started consolidation of 3F on October 1, 2013.
- Higher-than-expected fixed and inventory related costs, especially in the South America region.
- Increased pension fund related accruals and other pension costs in the EMEA region, mainly due to the ongoing relocation of certain business units.
Revenue guidance for 2013 remains as previously communicated. Kemira expects revenue in local currencies, excluding divestments to be slightly higher than in 2012.
