* Pro-forma data integrating Pure World as of January 1, 2005.
Since the Group extended its scope with the acquisition of Pure World one year ago, Naturex accelerated its growth with a dramatic increase in revenue of 85.4% (76.7% in constant dollars), in line with its development plan.
This performance takes into account the announced gradual withdrawal of a non‑core and unprofitable product from Pure World, which had a particularly strong impact in the second quarter (USD 2 million).
Given the strong development across all strategic activities, the Group confirmed its growth forecasts for the current year: 10% to 15% organic growth in constant dollars on the 2005 pro‑forma basis.
Naturex successfully increased in its capital by EUR 13 million in June 2006, confirming its plans to acquire another company in the coming months.
Naturex manufactures and markets 100% natural plant extracts for the food, flavour, nutraceuticals and cosmetics industries. Headquartered in Avignon, France, Naturex is an international company generating over 90% of its sales in 30 countries outside France, with 70% of sales on the North American market. Naturex operates manufacturing facilities in France, Morocco and the United States, and a representative office in Singapore.
