Novonesis is performing very well and the 2024 outlook for pro forma organic sales growth is now expected at the upper end of the 5-7% range while the pro forma adjusted EBITDA margin is increased to 35-36%.

Novonesis’ Capital Markets Day on June 18, 2024 will provide an introduction to Novonesis with insights on how the company intends to capture and accelerate organic sales growth. Also, Novonesis maintains the target for organic sales growth at 6-8% CAGR through 2025 with an adjusted EBITDA margin of ~37% and reconfirms the ambition to further accelerate organic sales growth beyond 2025.

Ester Baiget, President & CEO: "Demand for sustainable biosolutions will continue to grow stronger as the world needs answers to the increasing need to feed and fuel a growing world sustainably. The seamless integration of our two companies has already created a stronger foundation to capture and accelerate growth in the attractive biosolutions space. We are committed to leading the transformation of societies and economies to secure healthier lives and a healthier planet.”

Novonesis’ biosolutions are already present in peoples’ everyday lives, reaching more than half the world’s population. A growing population, increasing energy needs, evolving nutritional and health trends and climate risks create strong and increasing demand for sustainable biosolutions. Novonesis is uniquely positioned with strong customer relationships and an understanding of customer needs, a broad biosolutions toolbox, as well as the unique ability to up-scale and produce robust and affordable biosolutions. The foundation is in place to leverage our capabilities with clear prioritization and focused execution to deliver on the full potential. This enables the confirmation of targets until 2025 with an ambition to further accelerate profitable organic sales growth thereafter.
