Outlook

Commenting on the outlook for the Company, Keohane said, “Looking forward to 2017, we remain focused on our strategy of investing for growth in the core, driving application innovation with our customers, and generating strong cash flows through efficiency and optimization. Although the current business environment remains mixed, we expect to see moderate growth in 2017 across all segments. However, the first quarter is expected to be weaker sequentially due to typical seasonality and higher maintenance costs from anticipated plant turnarounds. Overall, we are focused on delivering shareholder value by growing annual adjusted EPS by 7-10% over time and returning approximately 50% of our discretionary free cash flow to shareholders.”
