Disclosure of an inside information acc. to Article 17 MAR of the Regulation (EU) No 596/2014, transmitted by EQS News - a service of EQS Group AG.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

In the course of preparing Covestro’s group accounts for fiscal year 2022, preliminary full-year financial figures deviate from capital market expectations, based on the average values of latest consensus estimates of financial analysts, published by Vara Research on January 12, 2023.

Therefore, Covestro provides already today the following preliminary key financial data for fiscal year 2022: 
  • Preliminary sales amount to EUR 17,968 million. The consensus expects this figure to be EUR 17,999 million.
  • Preliminary EBITDA amounts to approx. EUR 1,610 million. The previous guidance expected EBITDA to be between EUR 1,700 million and EUR 1,800 million. The consensus expects this figure to be EUR 1,679 million.
  • Preliminary net income amounts to approx. EUR -300 million. The consensus expects this figure to be EUR 420 million. The Group's net income is particularly burdened by extraordinary depreciation of non-current assets in the amount of approx. EUR 470 million and by adjustments of deferred tax assets in the amount of approx. EUR 250 million.
  • Preliminary free operating cash flow (FOCF) amounts to approx. EUR 130 million. The previous guidance expected FOCF to be between EUR 0 and EUR 100 million. The consensus expects this figure to be EUR -39 million.

The Annual Report 2022 will be published on March 2, 2023.
