  • Adjusting for foreign exchange, EBITDA guidance did come in below consensus due to supply chain and inflationary pressures and lower expected capacity utilization as COVID business tapers, and new facilities come online.
  • The FY23 EBITDA guidance of $1.31-1.39 billion, which, even adjusting for the 4% FX headwind, still falls short of the consensus of $1.418 billion by 1%
  • RBC is bullish, citing that the company remains very confident it can still achieve its FY26 30% EBITDA margin target, supported partly by an ongoing realignment of its commercial organization.
  • The analyst says the stability and durability of its business, coupled with investments into growth-focused and margin-accretive opportunities, put Catalent in a position to achieve its FY26 margin targets.
