Alent Share Price Information

Name Alent Epic ALNT
Sector Chemicals ISIN GB00BQ1XTV39
Activites Alent plc was demerged from Cookson plc and is a leading global supplier of specialty chemicals (advanced surface treatment plating chemicals and electronics assembly materials) used in the global electronics production industry and also in automotive and other industrial markets. The specialty chemicals industry is characterised by companies focusing on customised specialty materials that are generally important for the end application but represent only a relatively small share of customers' overall production costs. Specialty chemical materials are used in a broad range of end-markets, including, for example, the electronic, automotive, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, plastics, personal care, coatings, aerospace and agrochemical industries. Specialty chemical businesses typically have close customer relationships and relatively high R&D intensity, and benefit from high barriers to entry. By contrast to bulk or commodity chemical products, specialty chemical products are generally tailored to meet specific customer requirements and are primarily sold based on the value they add to a customer's manufacturing process or final product. Therefore, in the specialty chemicals industry, relationships with customers tend to be closer as compared to bulk or commodity chemicals businesses. The timely introduction of new and enhanced applications is a key driver of future growth, and higher-growth specialty chemicals players tend to benefit from underlying shifts in technology in their end-markets. Electronics component manufacturers are dependent on specialty chemical materials to drive their technology to the next level. For example, in the case of integrated circuit manufacturers, specialty chemical materials help facilitate the manufacture of smaller microchips with a higher transistor density. Therefore, although specialty chemical materials such as those supplied by Alent generally account for a small portion of total manufacturing costs, these products are critical in supporting technological development, ensuring product quality and allowing a customer to optimise its manufacturing processes.
