The speciality plastics and packaging company said on Monday that partial operations had resumed at the unit's affected sites on Oct. 2. The group, which makes products ranging from cigarette filters to adhesives, has been hit by continuing operational issues and significant decline at the health and personal care division since it was acquired from Clondalkin Group in 2015. Essentra estimated the profit impact from hurricane Maria at between 1.2 million pounds ($1.6 million) to 1.5 million pounds before recovery from insurance.
Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 23 (Reuters) - Essentra (LSE: ESNT.L - news) expects operating margins at its health and personal care packaging business to decline slightly in the second half of the year after two of its Puerto Rico sites were hit by hurricane Maria last month. The group, which makes products ranging from cigarette filters to adhesives, has been hit by continuing operational issues and significant decline at the health and personal care division since it was acquired from Clondalkin Group in 2015. Essentra estimated the profit impact from hurricane Maria at between 1.2 million pounds ($1.6 million) to 1.5 million pounds before recovery from insurance.
Puerto Rico's island-wide power outage will mean a surge in insurance claims for lost business income that will increase the already high cost of damage caused by Hurricane Maria, likely tipping some big reinsurers into the red this year, according to industry experts. Claims from Maria, on top of two other major Caribbean hurricanes this season, could push total global catastrophe losses for the year as high as $190 billion, according to some estimates, which would make it the most costly year on record for the insurance and reinsurance industries.
