The LANXESS Group had 17,502 employees as of September 30, 2013, which was 325 more than on December 31, 2012 (17,177). The principal reasons for the increase were the Group’s selective growth strategy and the first-time inclusion of the employees of LANXESS-TSRC (Nantong) Chemical Industrial Co., Ltd., China, which has been fully consolidated since the first quarter of 2013. By contrast, the inclusion of the previously fully consolidated DuBay Polymer GmbH, Hamm, Germany, as of the third quarter of 2013 according to LANXESS’s interest in its assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses led to a proportionate decrease in the number of employees.

The number of employees in the EMEA (excluding Germany) region rose by 66 to 3,508. Headcount in Germany came to 8,118, against 8,072 as of December 31, 2012. The workforce in North America increased by 6 to 1,559. In Latin America, headcount decreased compared to December 31, 2012, from 1,626 to 1,591. The number of employees in the Asia-Pacific region advanced by 242 from 2,484 to 2,726. This was mainly due to the investment activities in those countries and the inclusion of the employees of LANXESS-TSRC.
