Corporate Philosophy

WACKER is a leader in the chemical and semiconductor sectors, pushing ahead with technical innovations and the development of new products for the world's key industries. WACKER is organized as a group of independently operating units with extensive responsibility under one strong roof - this provides the necessary flexibility and resolve. Everything we do is conducive to global networking, cultural integration and environmental responsibility.

 

 

Highlights (Last-Next Year)

2017, WACKER intends to continue its good performance, despite expectations of higher raw-material prices. For the full year, WACKER aims to lift its sales by a mid-single-digit percentage. Group EBITDA is projected at last year's level. WACKER anticipates a high cash inflow from operating activities again in 2017

 

 

Special Remarks

WACKER benefited from the rise in economic output chiefly through volume growth. This was especially evident in our chemical products, as well as in
Polysilicon. Also a growth at every division.iin the industry sectors relevant to our business, the trend will be broadly positive in 2017. That is why we are confident of increasing sales by a slightly higher percentage than last year. We are, however, facing headwind from raw-material prices. At present, they are rising significantly and this could impact earnings.
