FINANCIAL TARGETS AND GUIDANCE
Aspo's financial goals, derived from its strategy, are based on calculations made from the company's profit-making capabilities, and they are closely interconnected.
Aspo creates value by owning and developing businesses in the long term. The improved operating profit margin target is supported by Aspo's business development measures and changes in the business portfolio. In addition to organic growth, the aimed growth is driven by investments in acquisitions and a strategic shift towards a compounder profile. Mergers and acquisitions are a key part of value creation, and the aim is to create growth and income flow through these.
ASPO's NEW LONG-TERM FINANCIAL TARGETS ARE:
- Operating profit of 8% (previously 6%)
- Net sales growth 5–10% per year (new target)
- Return on equity of over 20%
- Gearing less than 130%
