Symrise fulfills 2017 targets and dynamically starts into current fiscal year

Symrise AG achieved profitable growth in the fiscal year 2017 and reached all of its targets. The Group increased sales by 3.2 % to € 2,996.3 million (2016: € 2,903.2 million).

With an EBITDA margin of 21.0 %, Symrise exceeded its 20.0 % target and was once again one of the most profitable companies in the industry (2016 normalized: 21.5 %).
