Solid 2018 results - Profitable growth and significant free cash flow confirmed for 2019

"In 2018, Plastic Omnium went ahead with two major strategic moves, with the disposal of its Environment Business and the takeover of HBPO, the world leader for front-end modules. Now a pure automotive player, the Group is strengthening its leading positions to contribute to the technological transformations toward clean, connected and autonomous cars.
Our results, once again solid in 2018 despite the first drop in world automotive production since 2009, are giving us the key means we need to be successful with this strategy. Having already taken measures to face a complex market environment, we are confident in our capacity to make further progress in 2019."
