Cookson Holds Capital Markets Day (posted 10/9/08)

Cookson Group plc recently hosted a Capital Markets Day at its Ceramics facility in Borken, Germany. This facility, which principally serves the foundry market, was acquired as part of the Foseco acquisition in April 2008. Presentations were given on the Ceramics division’s foundry activities and markets, followed by a site tour.

Underlying trading for the Ceramics division (Vesuvius and Foseco together) in the third quarter was ahead of the corresponding period last year (on a pro forma basis for Foseco). Underlying trading in the Electronics division in the third quarter was slightly below the corresponding period last year, but is broadly in line with last year for the nine-month period to September 2008. The Precious Metals division has remained profitable in the quarter.

Copies of the Capital Markets Day presentations are available at www.cooksongroup.co.uk.
