AGM Trading statment

(26/04/2007)

Croda announces its AGM trading statement for 2006.

Commenting at today’s AGM, Martin Flower, Chairman of Croda International Plc, said:

“The encouraging trading seen in January has continued through to the end of the first quarter. Our unaudited management accounts show revenues and profits are in line with expectations despite significant adverse currency movements versus last year. Even after exiting some unprofitable business acquired with Uniqema , pro-forma revenues for continuing operations in the enlarged group are up 5.5% on a constant currency basis versus the corresponding period last year (1% down post a 6.5% adverse currency translation).

Pre-tax profits from continuing operations are up by almost 17% in spite of the adverse currency effect in the quarter versus last year. The planned synergy gains are developing steadily month by month as we realise the benefits of our swift and efficient integration of Uniqema.

Net debt was £394m at the end of March principally due to one off payments into the pension fund and the settlement of working capital and cash adjustments with ICI relating to the acquisition of Uniqema.

As reported in our annual report and accounts, Mike Ward is standing down from the Board at the end of today’s AGM after six years with Croda. The Board thanks Mike for his contribution and wishes him well for the future. Mike Buzzacott will be assuming the chairmanship of the Audit Committee.

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Stanley Musesengwa as a non-executive director of the Company with effect from 7 May.  Stanley is currently a director and the Chief Operating Officer of Tate & Lyle PLC. Since joining the Tate & Lyle group in 1979, he has held a number of senior international roles including Chief Executive Officer of Tate & Lyle Europe from 1999 to 2003.  We look forward to welcoming Stanley to the Board and believe his extensive high level commercial experience will be a great asset to us.”

There are no further matters to be disclosed under LR9.6.13R of the Listing Rules of the UK Listing Authority.

Croda International Plc will be announcing its interim results on 25 July 2007.

Third Quarter Trading Statement

(02/11/2006)

Croda announces its results for the nine months to 30 September 2006.

 Commenting on the results for the nine months to 30th September 2006, Martin Flower, Chairman said:

“Sales for the 9 months were 5% higher than the previous year with only a marginal benefit from currency translation. Strong sales in Consumer Care were partially countered by the planned reduction in toll processing and technical oil trading.

Excluding the effects of the Uniqema acquisition, our unaudited management accounts show continuing profit before tax was in line with expectations, up over 8% for the nine months versus the corresponding period last year.

The period incorporated one month of trading from Uniqema. Here, profits were in line with expectations with a good sales performance countering some under recovery of cost increases. Initial visits to all major acquired sites have confirmed the high quality of the assets and personnel in Uniqema and the integration process is progressing in line with plan.

We were pleased with the demand for shares in the recent placement. As a result of this, net debt stood at £326m at 30th September 2006.”

AGM Trading statment

(26/04/2006)

Croda announces its AGM trading statement for 2006.

Commenting at today’s AGM, Martin Flower, Chairman of Croda International Plc, said:

“In my statement published with the preliminary results announcement in February, I said that the early signs were that the firm demand witnessed in 2005 had continued into this year. I am pleased to report that our unaudited management accounts for the first quarter of 2006 show revenues from continuing operations up by over ten per cent in Sterling (seven per cent in constant currency terms) compared to the same period last year. Profit before tax for continuing operations for the first quarter was ahead by a similar amount.

The results have benefited from continuing firm global demand for our products, and have been achieved despite the significant increase in energy costs we are currently experiencing.

Group net debt increased to £32m at 31 March as we purchased further shares for Treasury, with £21m spent in the quarter.”

The Company will be announcing its interim results on 26 July 2006.
