Kemira Oyj's Interim Report January-March 2017: Revenue grew in all segments while profitability was under pressure This is a summary of the January - March 2017 Interim report. The complete Interim report with tables is attached to this release and available at www.kemira.com/investors Kemira expects its operative EBITDA to increase from the prior year (2016: EUR 302.5 million). Kemira's President and CEO Jari Rosendal: "The start for the year was two-folded. Our revenue grew in all segments driven by the organic growth while profitability was below the prior-year level due to three main reasons. Sales prices are still lower than a year ago, although the decline in sales prices has stopped on sequential comparison. Rising feedstock prices impacted profitability for all segments as the tightness in ethylene and propylene markets caused sudden increases in oil-based raw material prices. Temporary supply distractions, such as the force majeure at Huntsman Pigments in Finland and the supply shortage of chlorinated fatty acid, have increased costs and caused some asset under-utilization. In Pulp & Paper, sales volumes continued to grow. We lost revenue due to the force majeure, but the underlying revenue generation is developing according to plan. The new site serving Klabin in Brazil is fully operational and we expect the new sodium chlorate line in Joutseno, Finland, to be up and running in the fourth quarter of 2017. The major contract manufacturing agreements with AkzoNobel will end in the coming months leading to synergies of EUR 20 million as a run-rate at the end of 2017. Oil & Mining had organic growth of 16% driven by strong sales volume development in the North American shale oil & gas business. However, the profitability level was unsatisfactory for the segment in Q1 due to recent increases in raw material prices. We have already announced price increases for our polymer products to counteract the impact of these higher raw material costs. In Municipal & Industrial, volume growth continued, however, lower average sales prices and higher manufacturing costs impacted profitability. The segment continued to deliver strong cash flow. We are executing our strategy according to plan in the mixed market environment. We will merge Oil & Mining and Municipal & Industrial into one new segment, Industry & Water. Organizational structure is planned to be changed to support the two segment model and this is expected to result in further operational efficiencies of EUR 15-20 million as a run-rate at the end of 2017. The main objectives of the change are to simplify Kemira's way of working and further improve service to its customers." KEY FIGURES AND RATIOS *12-month rolling average (ROCE, % based on the EBIT) Kemira provides certain financial performance measures (alternative performance measures) on non-GAAP basis. Kemira believes that alternative performance measures, like operative EBITDA and operative EBIT, followed by Kemira management, provide useful and more comparable information of its operative business performance. Kemira's alternative performance measures should not be viewed in isolation to the equivalent IFRS measures and alternative performance measures should be read in conjunction with the most directly comparable IFRS measures. Definitions of the alternative performance measures can be found in the Definitions of the key figures in this report, as well as at www.kemira.com >Investors > Financial information. All the figures in this interim report have been individually rounded and consequently the sum of individual figures can deviate from the presented sum figure. OUTLOOK FOR 2017 (UNCHANGED) Kemira expects its operative EBITDA to increase from the prior year (2016: EUR 302.5 million). MID- AND LONG-TERM FINANCIAL TARGETS (UNCHANGED) Kemira aims at above-the-market revenue growth with operative EBITDA margin of 14-16%. The gearing target is below 60%. Helsinki, April 25, 2017 Capital Markets Day will be held in London on September 21, 2017. PRESS AND ANALYST CONFERENCE AND CONFERENCE CALL Kemira will arrange a press conference for the analysts, investors, and media on April 26, 2017 starting at 10.30 a.m. (8.30 a.m. UK time) at GLO Hotel Kluuvi, Kluuvikatu 4, 2nd Floor, Helsinki.

Forest Ecology and Management | Year: 2013
Organized forestry in Brazil began in the late 1960s, stimulated by a government policy which subsidized afforestation programs from 1967 to 1989 to develop an internationally-competitive wood-based industry, managed by the private sector. Currently, planted forests in Brazil total about 6.9million ha, from which 4.9million ha is planted with eucalypt (around 25% of world plantation), 1.6million ha with pine, and 0.42Mha with other species. Roundwood consumption of forest plantations totaled 170.1millionm3 in 2011, eucalypt plantation accounted for 80.6% of this total.Most eucalypt plantations are managed in short rotations (6-8years) and are established in regions with water, nutritional and frost stresses of low to high degrees. The mean annual increment is 40m3ha-1year-1 roundwood, ranging from 25 to 60m3ha-1year-1 depending on the level of environmental stress. Improving natural resources use efficiency by breeding and matching genotypes to sites and using appropriate site management practices is a key challenge to sustain or increase productivity.The wide range of eucalypt species and hybrids with different climatic and edaphic suitability associated with the easy propagation by seeds and cloning allow the adaptation of plantations to various tropical and subtropical regions in Brazil. The possibility of using eucalypt wood in a range of purposes has led large and small enterprises to establish eucalypt forests for multiple uses. The desirable characteristics in association with the accumulated knowledge on eucalypt silviculture encourage the use of this genus in most plantations. The most important factors in the selective process for a genotype are wood characteristics, productivity level, susceptibility to pests and diseases, drought tolerance, especially in tropical regions (frost free), and frost tolerance in subtropical regions (mostly without water deficit). In regions with pronounced seasonality and moderate to long drought periods, the planting of hybrid genotypes predominates, propagated by cloning. Under subtropical conditions, the planting of single species predominates, propagated by seed. Clonal plantations with interspecific hybrids have been fundamental for eucalypt adaptation in regions under water and nutritional stresses. Given the rapid advances in eucalypt breeding, regarding adaptation to water stress and resistance to diseases and pests, and the adoption of clonal propagation techniques, genotypes are rapidly becoming obsolete and are replaced by more productive ones after harvesting. Thus, the replanting of crops has become a common procedure after the second half of the 1990s in Brazil.This paper describes the basic requirements for integrating genetic and silvicultural strategies to minimize abiotic and biotic constraints in eucalypt plantations. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

The Maytenus ilicifolia Mart. ex Reissek (Celastraceae), traditionally known as “espinheira-santa” in Portuguese, is native and cultivated in South Brazil. Its leaves contain triterpenes and polyphenolic compounds (favonoids and tannins), which are related to the antiulcerogenic effect. The aim of this work was to evaluate the dried biomass production (g), height (m), ramifcation, and also the total content in polyphenol compounds of the leaves from the M. ilicifolia specie, which were developed under two different light conditions after two different pruning treatments. The design of the experiment was randomized blocks with two levels of light (shadow or full sunlight) and two levels of prune (partial and drastic), with four replications. The height of the plants grown in the shadow was greater for the treatment of drastic pruning than in plants in full sunlight. The ramification increased significantly with drastic prune in full sunlight. The plants grown in full sunlight showed a significant higher content in total polyphenols than the plants grown in the shadow, 10.29±0.20% (RSD=1.94%) and 7.16±0.09% (RSD=1.30%) respectively. © 2014, Instituto de Biociencias.

This study evaluated genetic parameters, heterogeneity of residual variances and genotype x environment interaction, comparing the results obtained by Blup and Blup-Het procedures in Pinus taeda L. progeny tests. Experiments were set in random blocks with 150 treatments. Three experiments were located in Santa Catarina state and two were set in Paraná state, Brazil, with 5 and 9 blocks per site, respectively, and six plants per plot. At 6 years old, the progenies were evaluated for height and diameter. In general, results demonstrated that high residual variance lead to variance heterogeneity. When variances are associated to high genetic correlations among height and diameter characters, they indicate that Blup-Het procedure should be used, even if they present similar results, because genetic parameters estimated based on individual heritability for progeny is more accurate. Genotype x environment interaction was low, given similarities among progeny variance and similarity components, selected by adaptability, stability and productivity criteria. The genetic improvement program may be conducted at one site, due to the environments similarities, as demonstrated by effects from genotype x environment interaction determination coefficient and genetic correlations across sites.
