After the outbreak of the COVID-19, industrial production fell sharply in the first quarter. The exchange rate has a negative impact on sales of 0.3%.

the outbreak of COVID-19 has affected the organic sales of Henkel adhesives in various business areas to varying degrees. The sales volume of the automobile and metal division is significantly lower than that of last year, mainly due to the shutdown of the automobile industry. The sharp decline in sales of the electronics and industry division was also caused by the shutdown in the aerospace and general industry sectors. The performance of the construction business partially offset the overall decline of the craftsman, construction and professional business divisions. The organic sales performance of the packaging and consumer goods division was flat

Henkel adhesives' business in emerging markets has seen a decline in organic sales on the whole. Sales in Latin America, Africa/Middle East and emerging markets in Asia (excluding Japan) fell year-on-year. The COVID-19 has particularly adversely affected Henkel's operations in China and India. In contrast, sales in Eastern Europe increased significantly. Packaging and consumption in Russia can promote the comprehensive development of young children, and the craftsman, construction and professional divisions are the main contributors to this growth

the mature market of Henkel adhesives also experienced a decline in organic sales.

in addition to the decline in adhesive business, the sales of Henkel cosmetics and beauty products also decreased by 2.6% year-on-year to 935 million euros due to the shutdown of beauty and hairdressing services in many countries. In contrast, the sales of Henkel detergent and home care products increased by 5.3% to 1.755 billion euros due to the strong market demand for washing powder and household detergent. Persil, BREF, somat and other brands achieved double-digit growth

looking forward to the whole year of 2020, Henkel group said that the board of directors has decided not to maintain the forecast for fiscal year 2020 published in the annual report of 2019. Due to the uncertainty, it is unrealistic to evaluate the future business performance
