Arkema Is on Track To Become a 100% Specialty Materials Company

Rob Hales Senior Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Rob Hales |

France-based Arkema was spun out of Total in 2006 as a low-margin commodity chemical company focused on acrylics and vinyls. Over the past 15 years, Arkema has made significant progress toward becoming a speciality materials company through portfolio adjustments, with the divestment of the vinyls business in 2012 a key turning point. The company expects to complete the transformation by 2024 with continued acquisitions in adhesives and sealants while the most cyclical business (commodity fluorogases for refrigeration and cooling) is slated for divestment. We are constructive on the final destination and believe the company will have a more moatworthy business portfolio at completion.

AKE’s stock style is Mid Value.
Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
