AkzoNobel CEO, Thierry Vanlancker, commented:

“Our Q2 results were clearly impacted by two months of lockdowns in China and destocking in decorative paint do-it-yourself channels in Europe. Demand from our customers got back on track in June. Despite the significant Q2 headwinds we were able to match the volumes from pre-COVID Q2 2019.

“I’m extremely proud of how the organization stays focused and has the agility to push ahead with our Grow & Deliver ambitions of €2 billion EBITDA in 2023 – while mitigating increasing macro-economic and geo-political uncertainty with further cost reduction and margin management initiatives.”
