Karim Hajjar, CFO of Solvay, commented, “This early redemption will be financed out of existing financial resources and was made possible by the continued strong financial performance and cash generation in particular. Since 2019, the total deleveraging of debt and pensions approaches €3 billion and leverage as of the end of September 2022, was 1.2x, a record low. The continued strengthening of our balance sheet underpins our project to separate into two strong, independent leading companies in the second half of 2023.”
