PSA says plastics rise could inflate raw material impact


PARIS, Oct 27 (Reuters) - PSA Peugeot Citroen said higher raw material prices could have a greater impact on its profits this year than the forecast 300 million euro ($363.8 million), because of a recent rise in plastic prices. "We could even be above the range because of plastics, where there are tense prices lately. But not of the kind of size of the impact of steel," Chief Financial Officer Yann Delabriere told a conference call.
