    Q4 volumes were down 2 percent, with revenue down 1 percent. The decline in revenue in Q4 was mainly driven by weak demand in all regions and the sale of the German stores, offset by positive price/mix effects in the regions outside Europe
  • Volumes in Performance Coatings for the full year were up 1 percent, mainly from growth in Marine and Protective Coatings and Powder Coatings. Revenue was flat compared with the previous year due to adverse currencies.
    Q4 volume was flat, while revenue was up 4 percent on the previous year due to favorable currencies and price/mix
  • Volumes in Specialty Chemicals for the full year were up 1 percent. Revenue was 1 percent lower due to price pressure in caustic and unfavorable currency developments during the first half of the year. There were some interruptions in the manufacturing and supply chain in Q4, as well as market reactions following the large oil price reduction, leading to destocking. As a consequence, Q4 volume was down 1 percent. Revenue was in line with the previous year, with the adverse impact of volumes and divestments being offset by a favorable currency effect
