UK-listed McBride, the manufacturer of personal care and cleaning products, was under pressure on Monday.
Shares were down over 9% as at 13.23GMT after the company warned operating profit for the first six months of its fiscal year would disappoint forecasts.
In a trading update for the six months to the end of December 2017 McBride cited weak trading in the European Personal Care & Aerosols (PCA) unit and ongoing cost inflation. Against this backdrop, it now envisages full-year earnings to be in line with the previous year.
"Whilst the accelerated growth opportunity we are now seeing is an encouraging validation of the group's strategy and the positioning of our Household business, the immediate task of accommodating such substantial growth presents challenges and choices," said chief executive Rik de Vos.
The company also said it was pleased with recent order wins.
