“In 2016 we continued to make good progress in executing our strategy and we are well on track to deliver on our 2015-2018 targets. In the past year we have made strategic choices involving our customer and product portfolios. These choices resulted in a significant margin improvement, but at the same time had an adverse, albeit temporary, impact on our top-line growth in the year. For 2017, we are confident top-line growth will return to our guidance range. A notable highlight in the second half of the year was the announcement of the PLA joint venture together with Total, a market leader with technical and marketing expertise and a leading position in polymers,” commented Tjerk de Ruiter, CEO.
