Avantor Shares Are Falling After Hours: Here's Why

Avantor Inc AVTR shares are trading lower in Thursday's after-hours session after the company reported worse-than-expected financial results.

"Looking toward the second half of 2022, we expect the momentum in our core business to continue, and the robust order book for our proprietary products gives us confidence in our full-year growth trajectory," said Michael Stubblefield, president, and CEO of Avantor.

Avantor is a provider of mission-critical products and services to customers in the biopharma, healthcare, education, and government and advanced technologies and applied materials industries.
