Orion upgrades full-year outlook for 2020

Orion Corporation upgrades the full-year outlook for 2020, provided on 24 April 2020, for the part regarding operating profit. In 2020, the operating profit is estimated to be slightly higher or higher than in 2019.

Visibility towards the end of the year has improved in various areas of operations. For example, the impaired availability of generic products in Orion‘s portfolio manufactured by other pharmaceutical companies is not expected to have as negative impact to the whole year net sales and operating profit as assumed earlier. Operating expenses, in turn, for the whole year are expected to be somewhat lower than estimated.

The new outlook is based on the assumption that Orion‘s own production can continue normal operations despite the COVID-19 pandemic. This requires that Orion continues to succeed in protecting its employees and employee absence rates do not significantly increase, that personal protective equipment, starting materials, intermediate products and materials are available and that the logistics chains are sufficiently functional.

New full-year outlook, provided on 8 July 2020

Orion estimates that in 2020 net sales will be at a similar level as in 2019 (net sales in 2019 were EUR 1,051 million).

Operating profit is estimated to be slightly higher or higher than in 2019 (in 2019 operating profit was EUR 253 million).
