Analyst Estimates

BASF is widely covered by various German and international financial analysts, who provide their own research analyses and earnings estimates in respect of the company. On this page we provide you with the analyst estimates compiled monthly by Vara Research.

As before, BASF will neither be involved in the collection of the information nor in the compilation of the estimates; this will still be done independently by Vara Research.

The analyst estimates are exclusively based on the analyses of financial analysts who are independent from BASF. Any opinions, forecasts, estimates, projections or predictions regarding BASF’s performance (ultimately represented by the figures of the analyst estimates) given by the analysts only reflect their view and do not represent the opinions, forecasts, estimates, projections or predictions of BASF or its management.

BASF SE only renders the analyst estimates (average, high and low) compiled by Vara Research on this website. This does not imply that the company endorses, concurs with or adopts such information, conclusions or recommendations. BASF assumes no liability for the accuracy of such estimates and undertakes no obligation to update or revise such estimates, even if they differ from our own forecasts or expectations.
