Rhodia Backtracks On 2008 Outlook

Department: Business

Citing the economic downturn, Rhodia has revised its outlook for 2008. The company says it expects its operating profits for continuing operations to be about 10% below the comparable results for 2007. As a result, the French firm will not achieve its earnings-per-share objective for the year. "Over the past few weeks, we have witnessed short-notice cancellation of orders coming even from geographical areas that had shown satisfactory dynamics until recently," CEO Jean-Pierre Clamadieu says.
