Wood Finishes and Adhesives

Revenue increased by 7 percent compared with 2011, mainly due to currencies and price/mix. Demand levels in North America were flat, with modest recovery being witnessed in the US housing market. While Asia experienced slightly improved demand over the previous year, we experienced a stronger decline in demand across most of the European region in both finishes and adhesives. Cost control mitigated the impact of reduced volumes.
