Johnson Matthey on Wednesday lowered the profit outlook for its largest unit that makes pollution filters for cars and trucks and announced the departure of the unit's head, sending its shares down more than 3%. Shares of the FTSE 100 company was the biggest loser on London's blue-chip index. The moves follow scrutiny of Johnson Matthey's catalytic filters for trucks, which have been linked to emission issues at truckmakers Volvo and Cummins.
London markets remain muted as investors sit tight ahead of further clues on the Federal Reserve’s plan for interest rates.
"In the year, Clean Air performed strongly and we are investing in new plants to satisfy future demand, particularly from Asia which will be our next key growth driver," the company said in a statement. Clean Air, which makes up the lion’s share of company earnings, saw an 11% jump in sales while underlying profit was 13% higher. Johnson Matthey, which has a 200-year old history, said it anticipated 2019/20 growth in operating performance at constant rates to be within its medium term guidance of mid-to-high single digit growth.
-- System improves mine health and safety by providing clean air for workers, with no impact on productivity. -- More than 99% of particulates are destroyed, giving the best possible work environment.

Chemicals group Johnson Matthey has secured a site in Poland to produce ultra-high energy battery materials and signed a 10-year supply deal with Canada's Nemaska Lithium as it seeks to grow its exposure to the electric vehicle market. Plant construction should begin this year at Konin, about 200 kilometres west of Warsaw, and it would have the potential to produce up to 100,000 tonnes per year, Johnson Matthey said in a statement on Thursday. Johnson Matthey in 2017 said it was preparing for the shift to electric driving by investing 200 million pounds ($263 million) in developing next-generation technology.
A deficit in the palladium market that has driven prices of the autocatalyst metal to record highs will widen dramatically this year, specialist materials company Johnson Matthey said in a report on Wednesday. The company, a leading autocatalyst manufacturer, said the shortfall in the roughly 10 million ounce-a-year palladium market narrowed in 2018 to 29,000 ounces from 787,000 ounces in 2017, its widest in three years. Palladium-backed exchange-traded funds (ETFs) would no longer be able to bridge the gap between supply and demand by returning metal to the market, it added.
The FTSE 100 index ended 0.3 percent lower and the FTSE 250 slipped 0.8 percent, extending losses from the last session when the Bank of England (BoE) slashed its economic growth forecasts amid Brexit uncertainty. Investors also fretted about the protracted U.S.-China trade spat after news that U.S. President Donald Trump did not plan to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping before a March 1 deadline set by the two countries to strike a trade deal. "Whilst this is a bit of a blow, it's not in itself a reason to think trade talks are not going anywhere," said Neil Wilson, Markets.com analyst.
Swedish truckmaker AB Volvo's attempts to cope with a weakening global market are being complicated by problems with a component that do not appear to be affecting its main rivals. Volvo said in October some of its engines could be exceeding emission limits of toxic nitrogen oxides (NOx) because catalytic converters in its emissions after-treatment systems were wearing down more quickly than expected in certain situations. This fuelled speculation that rivals Volkswagen and Daimler could have the same problem, after Volvo said it sourced converters from a single external supplier.

German chemicals giant BASF (BASFn.DE) is betting on a new recipe for electric car batteries which stretches the time between charges while cutting dependence on nickel to help shave costs and grab more of a growing market. It is part of flurry of activity in the sphere of cathodes materials, a major component of battery cells for an anticipated switch to electric vehicles (EV) due to clean air regulation. At the moment BASF and others, including Belgium's Umicore (UMI.BR), a market leader, are boosting the nickel content to allow more energy storage and replace expensive cobalt, which is largely sourced from mines in Congo, where exploitation is rife.
