|In millions of euros||2022||2021||% change||2022 At a constant exchange rate||% change|
|Sales as of 31 March||51.2||51.8||-1.2%||50.3||-3.0%|
|Fine Specialty Chemicals||19.9||16.5||20.5%||19.5||18.2%|
The Pharmaceutical Synthesis business generated sales of € 31.3 million, an 11.3% decrease compared to 2021 (a 12.9% decrease at a constant exchange rate). This decrease can be explained primarily by lower volumes on several products, in particular hand sanitizers, as well as a lower R&D activity over the quarter. The activity however benefited from the first positive effects of the commercial production of Estetrol for Mithra at the Villeneuve-la-Garenne site and which volumes are expected to increase over the rest of 2022 and in 2023, as well as from a strong demand at the sites of Turku in Finland and Aramon.
Fine Specialty Chemicals
Net sales of Fine Specialty Chemicals totaled € 19.9 million, a 20.5% increase compared to 2021 (+ 18.2% at a constant exchange rate). All the activities have experienced a strong growth in sales with, in particular, a very strong demand on Electronics, Cosmetics and Lubricant Additives. Supply and logistical difficulties were able to be controlled and ultimately had only a small impact on net sales. Several new projects were also launched.
All the PCAS Group teams, with the support of its majority shareholder Seqens for the financing of its activities and its development, remain fully committed to improving the results in 2022 and a return to positive results in 2023, supported by the ramp-up in Estetrol volumes for Mithra.
