Sensient Technologies Corporation Reports Results For The Quarter And Year Ended December 31, 2012

The second component of the plan will generate operating efficiencies throughout the Company. The plan will reduce headcount and consolidate several facilities throughout Europe and North America. The Company expects to reduce its global headcount by more than 200 employees, and consolidate several manufacturing sites during the next twelve months. These changes will not impact the Company’s sales coverage, and will result in a more efficient utilization of our human and capital resources. We expect to incur approximately $10 million in one-time personnel related costs and $8 million of one-time non-cash costs related to the write-down of assets and other costs during the next twelve months. The Company expects to reduce its annual operating costs by about $10 million as a result of these changes.

“We achieved record revenues and earnings for a third consecutive year despite a very challenging environment,” said Kenneth P. Manning, Chairman and CEO of Sensient Technologies Corporation. “We increased our dividend, repurchased shares and continued to reinvest in our business during 2012. The Company is strong and the 2013 restructuring activities will give us better access to our customers, increase our efficiencies and improve our operating margins. We continue to see growth opportunities and I am very optimistic about the Company’s future.”
