AkzoNobel hosts teach-in to outline Decorative Paints’ global strategy

Today AkzoNobel will host an investor and analyst day that will focus on strategic opportunities for its global Decorative Paints’ business. The teach-in will be hosted by Keith Nichols, Chief Financial Officer, and Tex Gunning, Executive Committee member responsible for Decorative Paints, at the company’s headquarters in Amsterdam.

Investors and analysts will have an opportunity to meet AkzoNobel business leaders from various regions across the globe who will share their businesses’ offerings, position, and capabilities. The company will outline its strategy for Decorative Paints and specific regions – namely, strong brand positioning and product innovation – supported by operational excellence and leverage of AkzoNobel’s global scale.

The Decorative Paints’ business, which generated revenues of €5 billion in 2010, has solid growth platforms in all key global markets. The teach-in will focus on this potential and how AkzoNobel will continue to build on these opportunities despite current challenges in trading conditions and the overall economy.

The teach-in will be available via live webcast starting at 10:30am CET at www.akzonobel.com. The presentations are available to download from 9:30am.
