Investment summary

The reduction in Carbios’s operating losses in the first half of 2017 is positive. It was driven by revenue from Carbiolice for part of the period and the fall in external costs from the scheduled conclusion of the Thanaplast programme. The announced five-year partnership with L’Oréal shows confidence in Carbios’s technology. We have adjusted our DCF valuation range per share to €20-32 to reflect the latest capital markets activity.

Industry outlook

Growing volumes, environmental concerns and an increasing focus on sustainability are becoming ever more important challenges to conventional plastic market participants. Biological plastic production and recycling is the single most important aim of the industry as a response. The target is a circular economy whereby plastic is constantly reused and recycled.
