Stocks in this article: BAK

SAO PAULO, March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BRASKEM S.A. (BM&FBOVESPA: BRKM3, BRKM5 and BRKM6; NYSE: BAK; LATIBEX: XBRK announces today its results for 4Q11 and 2011.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • In a scenario marked by slowing demand and narrowing spreads in global markets, Company's EBITDA in the 4Q11 was US$396 million or R$718 million. In the year, EBITDA reached US$2.2 billion, down 3% from 2010.
  • Progress on the PVC and Butadiene capacity-expansion projects, which aim to add value to the existing streams and meet the continued market growth, ensuring the start-up of these projects by May and July 2012, respectively.
  • Implementation of the program to reduce fixed costs, which aims to maintain Company's competitiveness, even in a scenario marked by inflationary pressure and the merger of the new assets. SG&A of R$1.9 billion, virtually in line with 2010.
  • The synergies from Quattor acquisition stood at R$400 million, 6% higher than expected. In 2012, the full synergy gains of R$495 million in annual and recurring EBITDA are expected to be captured.
  • Progress on installing the Ethylene XXI Project in Mexico, which enjoys competitive feedstock - ethane basis (gas) - and access to the Mexican market, which is a net importer of polyethylene.
  • In early 2012, Braskem reopened the bond issue due in April 2021, placing US$500 million with a yield of 5.75% p.a., 25bps below the original issue; and the perpetual bond issue, with a yield of 7.345%, also below the original issue. The objective was to take advantage of the window of opportunity in capital markets and pre-pay short and medium term debt, in line with the strategy to increase the average term and improve the debt profile.
