Akzo Nobel earnings beat forecasts

Coatings and chemicals group Akzo Nobel said on Thursday that its fourth quarter profit before tax and interest rose 43% to €174m, largely due to cost savings.

The figures were above analysts’ expectations.
Turnover was up 2% at €2.4bn, in line with earlier statements. Akzo also said the integration of UK chemicals group ICI is well on track.
