Lonza reports strong financial performance


Positive outlook predicted through to 2018

Lonza has reported strong growth in the first quarter of 2015. The company met its targets in both the speciality ingredients and pharma sectors. Mid-term guidance also suggests positive development in both sectors leading up to 2018.

Despite foreign exchange rate and raw material volatility, Lonza plans for growth of at least 5% as a result of portfolio optimisation and productivity improvements.
