Henkel’s revised outlook came after it reported a 5.8 percent decline in nominal sales to 5.3 billion euros in the fourth quarter of 2023, mainly due to negative currency effects. Organic sales growth, which excludes currency and acquisition effects, was 3.2 percent, driven by strong pricing. Adjusted EBIT fell by 9.6 percent to 545 million euros, while adjusted EBIT margin dropped by 0.8 percentage points to 10.3 percent.

Henkel’s CEO Carsten Knobel said that the company delivered a “solid performance” in the fourth quarter, despite the challenging market environment. He added that the company made good progress in implementing its strategic growth agenda, which focuses on strengthening its core businesses, expanding its portfolio, and enhancing its sustainability and digitalization capabilities.
