Oct '09
Givaudan's sales momentum continues to improve with positive growth for the last two quarters compared to the previous year. Sales during the first nine months were CHF 3,025.5 million, an increase of 0.4% in local currencies and a decrease of 3.9% in Swiss francs.

Excluding the effects of the divested business in the Flavour Division, growth in local currencies was 0.6%. For the full year 2009,Givaudan remains confident to outgrow the underlying market, based on the solid brief pipeline and recent new wins.

The integration achievements of Quest have reinforced Givaudan's unique platform for accelerated growth and performance improvement.Givaudan continues to leverage its growth initiatives to increase its share in developing countries and in key market segments.

The company is confident to achieve the announced savings target of CHF 200 million by 2010 and therefore to reach its pre-acquisition EBITDA margin level of 22.7% by 2010.

Fragrance Division
The Fragrance Division recorded nine months sales of CHF 1,387.6 million, a decrease of 0.4% in local currencies and 5.1% in Swiss Francs. The sales recovery seen in the second quarter continued into the third quarter, with the division posting a growth of 3.1% in local currencies. All businesses reported a positive growth in the third quarter of 2009.

Fine Fragrances
Fine Fragrance sales continued to show an improving trend, slightly above a strong comparable for the third quarter of 2008. In Latin America and Asia Pacific sales continued to deliver strong double digit growth. In Europe and North America sales improved due to the launch of new wins with key accounts and improving sales for existing products.

Consumer Products
The Consumer Products business unit delivered good growth in the first nine months, due to a continued double digit sales increase in developing markets. Sales in mature markets were below prior year.

Asia Pacific reported strong sales growth among all customer groups, driven both by new wins and growth of the existing business. Sales growth was especially strong in Indonesia and the Philippines. Sales in Latin America grew at a strong double digit rate across all customers groups. Major growth was recorded in Brazil and Argentina. Sales in Europe, Africa and the Middle East were below last year's strong comparables, despite growth in the second and third quarter. Sales with local and regional customers in developing as well as in mature markets of this region increased. Sales in North America decreased versus prior year, mainly driven by the weakness of the air care segment.

On a worldwide basis, sales in the fabric and oral care segments recorded the strongest performance, followed by personal care. Sales in the household category and in particular the air care segment were below last year's levels despite growth in the third quarter.
