Appendix B: Sales Excluding Range Rationalization (Ex RR)
Following the formation of Syngenta, the Crop Protection business has sought to improve business quality and create value through the rationalization and modernization of the product portfolio. From 121 active ingredients (AIs) at the time of the merger, the range had been reduced to 78 AIs by the end of 2004 and the program is now complete. In addition, various third party products previously formulated and distributed by Syngenta but generating lower levels of profitability have been exited. Sales growth rates excluding rationalization impact have been calculated by excluding the sales decline at constant exchange rates between current year and prior period caused by these phase-out products.
